Specs: WINDOWS 8 (6.3), 9.6GHZ/4GB
HAY,
I HAVE A PROBLEM.
I EDITED GROUP POLICY. HOWEWER, AFTER I EDITED IT AND AFTER I RESTARTED COMPUTER, I WAS ABLE TO EDIT GROUP POLICY AGAIN. SO, I DID NOT APPLY A POLICY WHICH PREVENTS ME FROM EDITING GROUP POLICY (PREVENTS ITSELF).
BUT AFTER A FEW DAYS, I WENT TO GROUP POLICY TO CHANGE SOME SETTING, BUT, IT WONT LOAD.
I LOAD MICROSOFT MANAGEMENT CONSOLE, AND I WENT INTO NEW SNAP IN WIZZARD, AND WHEN I SELECT GROOP POLICY OBJECT EDITOR IT DISPLAYS ME THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE:

Group Policy Error ×

Faild to open Group Policy Object on this computer. Close
! You might not have appropriate rights.


Details:
The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid.


I DO NOT KNOW THE REASON FOR THIS. IT WORKED FINE TWO DAYS AGO, AND I DID NOT CHANGED GROUP POLICY SETTINGS SINCE A WEEK AGO. SO, I DO NOT KNOW WHY IS NOT WORKING. IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS IT BECAUSE I HAVE TO DETERMINE WHICH POLICY I ENABLED WHICH DETECT VIRUSES IN ALL .EXE AND .ZIP FILES (FALSE). SO, DO YOU NOW WHAT IS A PROBLEM, AND HOW TO RESOLVE IT?
IF NOT THAT, IS THERE EXTERNAL EDITOR FOR GROUP POLICY WHICH CAN EDIT "EXTERNALY ALTERED VOLUMES" CONTAINING GROUP POLICIES?
IF NOT THAT, THEN, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO BYPASS GROUP POLICY PROCCESSING IN REGISTRY? I KNOW IT HAS TO BE SOME 1/0 (TRUE/FALSE) SETTING FOR GROUP POLICY PROCCESSING.
THANK YOU.

I AM USING WINDOWS 8, AND THE GROUP POLICY IS LOCAL (NOT DOMAIN POLICY).
THANK YOU.

This reply does not address the problem but you should avoid using upper case in forums because it makes the post difficult to read and in forum circles it is considered bad manners and SHOUTING

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUGGESTION. ;)
HOWEWER, I DO PREFER THAT NO THIRD PARTY TOOLS ARE PICKING TRUGHT MY SYSTEM FILES.

IN THE MEAN TIME, WHILE I WAS WAITING FOR A REPLY, I HAVE SUCCEDED TO LOCATE THE ERROR MYSELF.

ERROR WAS CAUSED BY A CORRUPTED GROUP POLICY REGISTRY FILE (NOT THE SYSTEM REGISTRY). THE CORRUPTED FILE WAS C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\GROUPPOLICY\USER\REGISTRY.POL.
THAT FILE GOT CORRUPTED, AND SINCE GROUP POLICY EDITOR BUILDS ITS DATABASE IF IT IS NOT PRESENT, I SIMPLY DELETED CORRUPTED FILE, AND GROUP POLICY EDITOR NEXT TIME IT STARTED REBUILT REGISTRY.POL FILE.

ONLY THING WITH THIS IS THAT MY GROUP POLICY GOT UNAPPLYED, SO I HAVE TO MANUALLY APPLY EVERY SETTING TO MY WHISHES AGAIN.

BUT THIS FIXED THE PROBLEM, AND GROUP POLICY EDITOR IS WORKING FINE.

ALSO, I HAVE LEARNED HOW TO MANUALLY DISABLE GROUP POLICY, AND HOW TO MAKE A BACKUP, AND RESTORE IT MANUALLY, WITHOUT ANY TOOLS.
SO, I WAS NOT TRYING THIS TOOL.
AND SINCE THE PROBLEM IS FIXED, I DO NOT NEED THIS POST ANYMORE.
HOWEWER, I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DELETE IT, SO IT STUCKS HERE FOR GOOD. ;)
