    Broken windows Group Policy, any way to fix?

    Hi guys,

    Another IT person in our company was trying to help with setting up group policies for our Win7 deployment and wasn't paying attention to what he was doing and accidentally broke the policy some how. In ZENworks11 I had the group policy setup to manage Local Group Policies, now by default it has Active Directory Group Policy select. When I change it back to Local Group Policy and click on Configure, I get the following error:

    Code:
    Error Details:
    java.lang.NullPointerException

    The odd thing is if i try to edit a different policy i never get this error, its only with this one he screwed up on. Is there any way to fix this or do i have to rebuild it from scratch? Apparently he had tried to upload the GroupPolicies folder in the System32 directory, it wasn't published, but it did some how break it. Policies seem to be fine on the Workstations themselves. Thanks a ton for the help!
