    Default Group Policy: Snap in failed

    WinXP Pro SP2

    I went to use Group Policy today and it returned a snap in error

    I had a quick search and found a few helpful links, but one of the most probable solutions didn't work.

    Apparently DNS settings can put it out of whack. We recently hooked up with Jetstream if thats any help.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.

    does the event viewer under administrative tools give any help?
    There may be something else that is causing these problems.

    Are you running an Administrator. Trying to run it as a limited account on the school XP computers throws up that same error

    Yes, I have admin privileges. I'm sure it has something to do with DNS settings. Does using Jetsream have anything to do with DNS?
