Deleted everything in the C:\WINDOWS\security Folder does not rebuild

By kit_eizenga ·
I was having Issues with a PC properly pulling group policy. I deleted
everything in the C:\WINDOWS\security. When I did gpupdate /force it is not
recreating the policy meaning I do not see the subfolders for database such
as Database, logs and templates. Now I use RSOP and I see no policys being
applied on Computer Settings.

What can I do with this PC to fix it??

You could try to rebuild the WinXP system file structure, which might work in sorting out the problem:
Put in the WinXP CD
From a command prompt run:
sfc /scannow

This should fix your issue...

Coworker told me I was wrong

I was wrong you can only delete the insides of those folders. So I had to recreate them and then the policy started to download correctly.
