Thanks Darren

Since I can't open up the policy to edit it, however I can see the computer 
part of it if I click on  the Settings tab within GPMC, do you think at this 
point I should run DCGPOFIX /Target:Domain and have it recreate the default 
domain policy, then add back in the settings?

thanks

Todd
