secpol.msc missing? (Win 7 Pro)

Hi all!
I have windows 7 Professional. I just reinstalled Windows 7 and when I go to to the management console, there is no option to add the local security policy as a snap in. Is there any download where I can restore secpol.msc and the files associated with it?

Go to \windows\system32 and do a search for *.msc or go to a command prompt, change directory to \windows\system32 and do a DIR *.msc

is secpol listed?

very strange.

Do you have any idea as to why it is missing?

do me a favor and make a snapshot using the snipping tool of the listing of .msc files that are present. Be sure that you've enabled the display of hidden and system files.

To use the snipping tool, WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER.

Include that snip in your next post.

Oh wait I got it. All I had to do was do a system restore and it worked for me. I think some program deleted it. Thanks for your advice though!
