Hi, I am trying to delete a GPO object and its sayis "Access is Denied". I have logged into the server as Administrator which is also a member of Domain Admins & Ent. Admins.

I have also checked the /%Sysroot%/SysVol/Policies and double confirmed the permissions are correct

Anyone have ideas on why i am unable to delete it?

You can use ADSIEdit or dsacls to reset the permission of the GPO to the
default permission of the group policy class.

Group Polices are stored within Active Directory in the follow container.
CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=<domain>,DC=<xxx>

What version of server?  Depending on the version there is a way to turn off the protect on the GPO object that will cause this.
