In my case I had only created one setting when, for whatever reason, the process stopped responding. I removed the registry.pol file and created the setting again. All is well :)

Restoring Registry.pol file

I have encountered an issue where it appears my Machine\registry.pol file has
become corrupted on my main Domain GPO. I have an Windows 2003 AD enviroment
with some Windows 2000 Domain Controllers. When I try to edit the Domain GPO
I get an error saying "Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not
have appropriate rights."

When I go into the Group Policy Management MMC under Computer Configuration
Administrative templates I see the following:

The following errors were encountered:
The file
" \\\sysvol\\Policies\{GUID}\ Machine\registry.pol "
is not in a valid format. The file might be corrupt. Use Group Policy Object
Editor to reconfigure the settings in this extension.

Do I have to do a complete system state restore to restore the registry.pol
file? Or is there a way to just restore that file?

I am able to access all other GPOs in all other containers other than the
main GPO.

Thanks for any help!!
