How to Reinstall Gpedit.Msc
You can set a computer network's group policy using the gpedit.msc utility. (verifying boss image by Sergii Shalimov from Fotolia.com)

Gpedit.msc is a Microsoft Windows Management Console control file that provides system administrators with additional control over a computer. The gpedit.msc utility allows you to specify the system management information that you'd like to apply to computers on a network using the network's group policy. If your copy of gpedit.msc is corrupt, or if your version of Microsoft Windows did not come with the gpedit.msc utility, then you can download the gpedit.msc files from the Internet and manually register them for use with your computer.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Download a copy of the gpedit.msc ZIP file to your computer (see Resources). This file contains a fresh copy of the gpedit.msc control file and all associated data files.

  2. 2

    Open the gpedit.msc ZIP file in Windows Explorer. Copy the appmgmts.dll, appmgr.dll, fde.dll, fdeploy.dll, gpedit.msc, gpedit.dll and gptext.dll files to the c:\windows\system32 folder.

  3. 3

    Copy the system.adm, inetres.adm and conf.adm files to the c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\adm folder.

  4. 4

    Click "Start," and click "Run." This will open a run command box. Enter the following five commands in the run command box:

    regsvr32 appmgr.dll

    regsvr32 fde.dll

    regsvr32 fdeploy.dll

    regsvr32 gpedit.dll

    regsvr32 gptext.dll

    Doing so will register the new copy of your gpedit.msc files in the Windows System Registry.

  5. 5

    Open the gpedit console by typing "gpedit.msc" in the run command box, and press "Enter." This will open the gpedit console.
