    Error when opening gpedit.msc

    Started to get it a couple months ago. Time to look into it. Not really sure how.

    Copy of the closest file name I could find

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!-- (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation -->
    <policyDefinitionResources xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="" revision="1.0" schemaVersion="1.0" xmlns="">
    <displayName>enter display name here</displayName>
    <description>enter description here</description>
    <string id="DisableWindowsLocationProvider">Turn off Windows Location Provider</string>
    <string id="DisableWindowsLocationProvider_Explain">
    This policy setting turns off the Windows Location Provider feature for this computer.

    If you enable this policy setting, the Windows Location Provider feature will be turned off, and all programs on this computer will not be able to use the Windows Location Provider feature.

    If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, all programs on this computer can use the Windows Location Provider feature.</string>
    <string id="WindowsLocationProvider">Windows Location Provider</string>

    I wonder if it is because I have every thing about apps/sharing turned off. Also not using a MS account for anything.

    Tried a linux live dvd > too old for that stuff > finally was able to take ownership and delete the file. Fixed until some other crap
    shows up.
