    I have a workstation “RX_SPARE01” on which my GPO is not applying for some reason. The computer is WinXP SP2.

    The computer is located in the AD at:

    JLRXMELB.NET > John’s & Lyng Restorx > Computers > Misc Computers > Test Computers

    One particular GPO is called “Set default browser page title- Oakleigh” which sets the browser’s title. This is setup as a User ConfigWindows SettingsInternet Explorer MaintenanceBrowser User Interface/Customized Title Bar and is applied to the same OU as the computer above.

    Each time I log into RX_SPARE01, the browser title does NOT change. I ran a GP Modeling Query which showed the policy as applyable with the correct settings for that OU.

    I ran GPRESULT and got the following results:

    DC is Win2003 Server SP1

    Interestingly, the GPO has settings in the USER Config section. From GPRESULT above, the GPO was applied to “COMPUTER SETTINGS” but not to “USER SETTINGS”. This would explain why the GPO does not affect the computer. But why was it not applied?

    It looks like the onlu USER settings applied are from the Default Domain Policy. GP Modeling query shows the following:

    ..which shows that it SHOULD have been applied. So what is stopping it from being applied when GPRESULT is not showing it as even being attempted?
