    Error : 1000
    Windows can not access the file gpt.ini file for GPO.Te file must be present in location <>.

    Have given the everyone as read only permission and system users as full permisson. and apply secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy and secedit /refreshpolicy user_policy

    even though i am getting this error after every 5 min in application log .

    Don't know if you saw this one at Experts Exchange.

I couldn't find it, so I looked in each and every other GPO folder and found it. It looks like the previous admin may have draged it to another folder by accident. I moved it back under the policies folder, did a refresh with secedit and BINGO the problem was solved. I was just lucky on this one.
    My apologies to Experts Exchange for not linking to the whole thread but it seemed easier in this case to just quote the appropriate reply. If you have any objections please PM me and this post shall be removed.
