Tweak UI Issue On New Machine

I recently purchased another laptop and was in the usual process of fine tuning it.

After loading the latest Tweak UI from Microsoft's site and installing it, when I start the program and click on "ABOUT" there's only one sub-folder; "TIPS". There's no usual "POLICIES" folder below it.

Used this program dozen of times on previous machines and never ran into this.

Windows XP SP2 (all updates as of today).

Any suggestions or advice?

Have you tried downloading it again and reinstalling it?

Yes.

I also ran
START
RUN
MMC
clicked ADD/REMOVE SNAP IN
clicked ADD
tried to add GROUP POLICY but that wasn't there either. Seems all adjustable POLICIES aren't there.

Strange. Very strange. Hope someone has a clue or I'm dealing with another Microsoft ghost. (sigh)

Yes very strange indeed. Have you ran your antivirus\antispyware? If so what did it fine? What security software do you run?
I would strongly recommend you run a HJT log and post a log in the Malware Removal Section of the forum. If you have malware infecting your system the HJT Team will more than likely detect it.
If you decide to post a HJT do not edit your HJT log yourself. You very well could corrupt your system to the point that you have to reinstall your operating system. The HJT Team are highly trained. DO NOT take advise from anyone but a HJT Team member.
Once posted, be patient. They have a very heavy load and will proccess your log as soon as possible. Just like your log is unquie the recommendation they provide you will also be unquie and designed just for your computer.

Good luck, and remember be patient.
