Hello toddblake,

Do you have correct setup in explorer ?
I mean show hidden folder,
 uncheck "hide known extensions" or something like this
 uncheck "hide protected files"  or something like this

 Check all others sysvol to be sure if it's nowhere.

 I have a W2K3 where i didn't touch the default policy...maybe i can
 send it to you ?

 Cheers,
 Mathieu CHATEAU
