Pretty easy one but dont think its on my blog, here’s how to clear down the GPO cache meaning it will pull down correctly:

  • Open My Computer/Computer
  • Go to: %windir%\system32\GroupPolicy
  • Delete everything in the folder.
  • Then delete: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Group Policy\History
  • Restart the computer to re-apply the group policies

If that doesnt do what you need it to:

  • Delete the “HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft” Key
  • Delete the “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects”
  • Delete the “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies”

Worse case:

  • Remove the computer from the domain
  • Restart computer
  • Run gpupdate /force
  • Rejoin the domain
