I second Jamie's recommendation.

Since you are missing some of the relevant ADM templates, I think you should 
dump the contents of the registry.pol file to text where you can see all of the 
settings at once and compare to the report from the GPMC (especially the 
section showing miscellaneous registry entries)--besides, this will make it 
easier to re-create any of the ADM templates you might want. The downside, of 
course, is that you'll be missing anything that had been in the original 
"Explain" tabs on those settings.

If you have any questionable settings, compare to the MS provided GPO Registry 
settings spreadsheet (latest date 3/9/2008):

Note: Entries in the registry.pol file can not only come from the 
Administrative templates, but also from a few other areas in the GPO Editor 
(e.g. Certificates, etc.). So to make sure you have everything documented that 
you want, use the following steps to dump the data directory from each 
Registry.pol file you want:

Copy the registry.pol file to your local workstation (say...to the root of the 
C: drive)

Open a CMD shell (Start | Run | cmd | OK)

Enter: regview registry.pol > temp.txt [Enter]

Enter: Notepad temp.txt

If you know what registry keys you're looking for, then why don't you
just recreate the ADM manually and set them back to not configured?
