If the file is not there on any DC then I suspect the "corruption" message
is simply telling you that the AD part of the GPO says there should be
registry policy but the SYSVOL part is not finding it. Since that file
stores Admin. Template policy as well as Software Restriction policy and a
couple of others, you will have to recreate those settings on that GPO.

Mathieu.

also, upon further inspection, I can't even find a registry.pol file in that
directory, anywhere underneath the policy guid, that's strange.....

So I have no registry.pol file to "move out", 

anything else I might try?

thanks again.
