I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Add Group policy to vista home premium ??

Hi unica and welcome to the forums

Sorry, but it is not possible to add the Group Policy Editor to the Home versions of Vista. This tool is only available on the Business and Ultimate versions. However, some (but not all) of the changes that can be made with this editor can also be made by editing the registry directly. In other words, it is a bit like an interface centre. Those changes which cannot be made this way refer to the features of Vista that are only found in the Business and Ultimate versions.

My HP Pavilion DV6516TX Notebook has Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2 Installed. I want to turn off System Restore temporarily to remove a Trojan horse as advised by Symantec. However, i am unable to turn off System Restore temporarily because Group Policy does not allow. In Home Premium edition there is no facility to edit group policy because the same is not available in this edition of Windows Vista.

Can any expert help me to turn off System Restore temporarily in the light of the above using any alternative means? Please inform the complete steps to do this in detail. Thanks in advance.
 

A:System Restore Cannot Be Turned Off In Home Premium . Group Policy Does Not Allow.

You can delete the policy using the 'reg delete' command. Open a command window and type REG DELETE "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore" /F
(note there are exactly four spaces in the command line)

This will delete any group policies affecting System Restore, assuming something hasn't blocked access to the registry key. You may need to restart Windows to make the change effective.

Scott, a bit off topic...just a bit,.....Kari;

I understand the limitations of Group Policy (GP) for my version of Windows 7 Home Premium (HP), and in going through my links I was reminded of a, for lack of a better term a "tweak" to HP that might open GP to 7HP users.

Do you believe making the change would provide a benefit or a detriment to my version?

A:Group Policy for Windows 7 Home Premium

Hello Steve,

It's been my experience that trying to add Group Policy to unsupported editions of Windows 7 just doesn't work or work properly. In addition, there's a good chance of messing up Windows trying to add Group Policy if mistakes are made during the process.

If one wants Group Policy, it would be best to get the Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate edition.

Hi there.

I know that Win7 Home Premium does not have the group policy management console.

As i only connect directly to my modem and do not file share or edit the computer remotely etc. From a security point of view, which policies would you recommend to change from their default state?

I'm aware that some if not all policies can be edited in regedit, are the registry values easy enough to find or should i just bite the bullet and upgrade my Windows 7 to Win7 Ultimate.

Thanks for any help.

TwistedZombie

My university requires all student laptops to run a little application that makes some changes in the registry to allow access to the campus' network.

After running the application, I noticed that it also made changes to group policy settings for Windows Update. I can no longer choose how I want Windows Update to work, since it has automatically selected the recommended setting and has greyed out the rest. Right at the top it tells me that these settings are managed by my system administrator, which is supposed to be me.

My question is how do I go about editing group policy for Windows Update using RegEdit? I would like to restore my access to the update settings.
 

A:editing home premium group policy (for windows update)

To access the Group Policy management open "Run..." (Start+R) and type "gpedit.msc". That gives you the Group Policy management.

I searched the internet nothing related to my case.

Win7 Home Premium does NOT contain the well known GroupPolicy Editor. This is a feature only in Win7 Pro and above.

What is exactly meant by "Group Policy Editor": The tool "gpedit.msc" (from former WinXP) or the group policy features itself?

If only the tool is meant then the Home Premium user could enter the function manually in registry (as in WinXP). Is this possible?

A:Direct Group Policy features as Registry values in Win7 Home Premium ?

gpedit.msc is the Group Policy editor. However, if you want to find a setting that you can normally edit with gpedit, and you have access to a Win7 machine *with* gpedit, you have two options:

1. You can look at the .admx files in %windir%\PolicyDefinitions\ and the corresponding .adml files in %windir%\PolicyDefinitions\<language>\ to get the keys/values that correspond to the actual group policy settings - the .admx files contain the actual registry settings that a policy would set, and the .adml files contain the text that you see in the group policy editor for a policy. So, find the text of a policy setting you want to set in one of the .adml files (you will have to search), and you will see that there is a "string id" associated with it - search for that string id in the .admx file of the same name, and you'll find the reg value and key to set the policy manually .

2. If you're lazy like me, you can find a lot (not all, but a lot) of these here:
http://gps.cloudapp.net/
Again, not all are listed here, so you may need to resort to #1 if you cannot find the policy you want to configure via #2.

A:Group Policy-Change Windows to use UTC?

I don't know of a Group Policy setting other than a logon/logoff script that makes the entry, but this is the relevant registry key:

Code:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation
Name = RealTimeIsUniversal
Type = Reg_DWORD
0 = RTC is Local Time
1 = RTC is UTC

It is very buggy in XP, especially after sleep or hibernation, you need Vista SP2 or Win 7, and even then it takes a certain procedure to get it working:
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/0b872d8a-69e9-40a6-a71f-45de90c6e243

Let me clarify how this should be used:
1 - Edit the registry to include this option;
2 - Shutdown Windows and start your alternate OS (e.g. MacOS);
3 - Set the time right;
4 - Shutdown your alternate OS and boot Windows;
5 - Sleep and resume from sleep WindowsClick to expand...
I've not tested this myself, just did some Googling.

As the topic says so, i recently cannot access my vista shared folders...

i went to see if the password protected sharing was ON, and it was.... i tried to turn it off and i couldnt, several tries after i went to check the firewall... and it was OFF... at the top of the windows it says something like this "These settings cant be changed due to Group Policy" or something like that ....

1) i'm the owner of the PC
2) i'm the solely admin of the PC
3) there is no other user in this PC..

what can i do to change this settings ??

BTW i tried to log on in safe mod as the Administrator account, and this didnt change anything... the Group Policy thing keeps appearing

The lack of logon password may also be affecting network access.

To change this setting:

Run gpedit.msc
Go to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options
Double click on Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only
Disable this option

Hi All,

I am after a bit of advice. I am editing a group policy on a windows 7 pro edition, and I am exporting it using the GPOPack tool and then I am importing the user registry.pol onto a windows home edition, using localpol.exe and it says that it is running successfully, but none of the policies are actually being applied.

We downloaded a gpedit.msc tool for the home edition and the values are showing as set, but they are not being applied.

The policy I am trying to alter, is the Control Panel policy to prevent users from accessing the Control Panel.

Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum, hopefully im not helping you out so you can go and download illegal software or movies ect..

As an administrator
firstly click start and try run;
In the dialogue box type CMD and press enter;
then in the box type gpedit.msc and hit enter;
double click windows settings;
then click software restrictions and policies;
Then in that section change your user profile to basic user, as default it should be set as disallowed.

Hello Dooper,

It sounds like you may have used the method in OPTION TWO below to turn off Windows Defender then. It manually sets the same policy via Registry Editor instead.

I was hoping to disable fast startup with group policy, but that doesn't seem to be an option.  Enabling the policy below forces fast startup to 'on', but disabling it simply defaults to the local computer setting, which is also 'on'.
Computer Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/System/Shutdown/Require use of fast startup
A work around could be to use group policy to disable hibernation completely, but I do not want to do that, I only want to disable fast startup.
I also know the change can be scripted, but I'd rather use group policy and am throwing this out there to see if I'm missing a setting before I move on to an alternate solution.

If you want to turn off the firewall, go to Control Panel > Admin Tools > Services and double-click it in the right pane. Set it to "disabled" and stop the service.

There is no policy control in Home. Some settings can be managed with:

but everything else needs to be controlled in the registry.

I want to set up a *very* limited account on the computer for people to use over VNC, for interactive tutorials, etc. This machine is running Windows XP Home edition SP2. I know that the group policy editor is not present in XP home, so how can I set restrictions for one particular user account on the computer without going through thousands of registry keys or buying more applications? Thanks.

Look in the C:\Windows\System32 folder on a PC with XP Pro and copy the files "gpedit.msc" and "gpedit.dll" to the System32 folder of the Home PC and then try running the group policy editor on the home PC and see if it works.

A:This Program is blocked by group policy - posted in Windows Vista

Hi
Lets get some initial information firstly:
We will be helping you with your problems. Please be patient while we assist you.
Some points for you to keep in mind while we are helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do NOT run, install or uninstall any programs, unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.
- Do NOT backup any unknown files ending in .exe, .com, .scr, .pif, and .bat since files of these types are more likely to be infected.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.
----------------------------------------------
Please do the following:

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.Note: If Cure is not an option, Skip instead, do NOT choose Delete or Quarantine unless instructed.A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).Copy and paste the full contents of that file in your next reply. - If the log is too long, then split it into multiple posts.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Search.A logfile will automatically open after the scan has finished.Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[R1].txt as well.
Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.Make sure the following options are checked:Internet ServicesWindows FirewallSystem RestoreSecurity Center/Action CenterWindows UpdateWindows DefenderOther ServicesPress Scan.It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.Please copy and paste the full contents of the log in your next reply.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.Important: To help me reviewing your logs, please post them in code boxes. You can create them by clicking on the <>-symbol on top of the reply window.    HijackThis is not the preferred initial scanning tool in this forum. With today's malware, a more comprehensive set of logs is required to determine the presence of malware.    Scan with FRST in normal modePlease download Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool to your desktop: FRST 32bit or FRST 64bit (If not sure: Start --> Computer (right click) --> properties) Run FRST.Don´t change one of the checkboxes and hit Scan.Logfiles are created on your desktop.Poste the FRST.txt and (after the first scan only!) the Addition.txt.  Scan with Gmer rootkit scannerPlease download Gmer from here by clicking on the "Download EXE" Button.Double click on the randomly named GMER.exe.

Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries Scan with TDSS-KillerPlease read and follow these instructions carefully.

Press Start Scan
If Malicious objects are found, do NOT select Copy to quarantine. Change the action to Skip, and save the log.
Once complete, a log will be produced at the root drive which is typically C:\ ,for example, C:\TDSSKiller.<version_date_time>log.txtPlease attach this file to your next reply.

A:Programs Blocked by Group Policy - But Why?

The mailware may have put in a registry entry under policies that is
causing yuor behaviour.

As a last resort you could try this:

Logon as an Administrator

Navigate to HKLM\Software\Policies and nose around to see if anything
there might be the cause.

Next, Navigate to
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies and do the
same.

If nothing jumps out at you, back up both of these registry keys then delete them and then
run GPUPDATE /FORCE and see if problem is still there.

If so, try all the above steps again, but this time use HKCU instead
of HKLM.

Hi, we've created a company theme (.theme) which we want to deploy to the users workstations either via GPO or script. Is this doable?We've set up a GPO which pushes the .theme-file along with the wallpaper-images to the C-drive of the workstation so this is alle taken care of. The problem which remains is how to activate the theme for the users?Any ideas?CheersRolf

A:Change Theme with Group Policy or script

Hi and thanks for the reply! We've actually figured it all out. We found a GP-setting at User -> Administrative templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization -> Load a specific theme. We then point to a .theme-file we copy out at every boot using GP preferences. We had to set GP loopback processing to replace so the user-setting for the theme is applied for the computer-object.Works like a charm! :)

I am trying to set the home page for a group of pc's on my network. All running win2k pro. And server running win2k server.
On the server i have found the section that allows me to specify the Defaul home page. However I want to set this to an Intranet site. The site is on the server. And there is a drive letter mapped to the directory of the intranet. Ex. p:\intranet\index.htm. Well when i try and enter that line in the home page section under GP. It says to enter a valid URL. So I tried \\servername\director\index.htm. Same thing. So my question is....is there a way around this problem? Or can I use the DNS on the local server to point a www. name to the directory? Please Help!! Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I've just got my computer back after reinstalling Microsoft OS, and I'm currently installing my old programs. However, some programs/functions are blocked by group policy/admin. It seems like the policies may have been modified by default when the OS was reinstalled.

I am the owner/admin, personal home computer, private network, not part of domain.
I've tried some methods mentioned in other threads such as running as admin, changing security policy to prompt for credentials, checking blocked programs in AppLocker.

There is one method I've been looking into before using, which is going into regedit and deleting some registries, but I've read that deleting the wrong file can wreck the OS. I'm hesitant about this because I'm not very proficient with computers.
Are there other solutions to this issue?
If not, perhaps someone could provide advice on how to modify registries.

Hello Seven Forums,

So I was trying to disable the 'Network Access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication' since it was enabled which meant I couldn't save passwords. When I right clicked it and opened properties, the options of enabled and disabled were grayed out. Also, there is a padlock on the icon of the Security Settings tab and so does its subtabs. I am on an administrator account but it still doesn't allow me to change the settings. It would be awesome if someone can provide me all the possible solutions; done on Registry Editor would be preferable.

Thanks!

Hey all,

I'm in the same boat as CIS was when he posted this thread:

Help with Group Policy?

I've googled and googled and read so much my head is about to explode but still haven't found what I'm looking for.

My end-goal is to change the shell for just a single user account. I poked around the registry for quite a bit after looking at some dated information on how to do it in there but couldn't find an equivilent key in Windows 7 (I believe the information was for XP). Then I discovered it can be done in the Group Policy Editor under User Configuration -> Admin Templates -> Sytem under "Custom User Interface", but this will change it for everyone it appears. My searching eventually led me here, so I decided to stop, and post for help

If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated

Hi all!

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on a domain

I've NEVER seen this before and I cant figure it out.

I have a group policy set on an OU named LAPTOPS. The policy gets applied, however the User Config\Windows Setting\Scripts\Logon DOES NOT. When you run the GPRESULTS on the laptop, I see the policy settings being applied EXCEPT for the LOGON script. Its not there. I dont see any errors and cant figure out why Windows would ignore this one setting in the policy but apply the rest. I've tried deleting and recreating the policy but that does not work. Also made sure I did a GPUPDATE /FORCE

Thanks in advance!

Hello Max,

You will always see that message whenever anyone or anything opens the blocked program.

Since this is happening at startup, check your startup programs for this file, and either disable or delete it from running at startup. This should stop the message.

I have a group policy setup to re-direct My documents to a file server. The problem is that when multiple people log into a Vista machine, it syncs ALL of them in offline files no matter what user is logged in.

I was under the impression that Vista fixed that problem?

If I delete all users under the user directory, it STILL syncs a bunch of the users!

any ideas?


OS: Vista Business - SP1
LAPTOP: Lenova x61 Tablets
Server: Windows 2003 Active Directory in use - Group Policies
Virus Software: NAV

Steps Taken:

Removed all offline files form sync center and offline files in Control Panel. This did not help. It also only removed certain folders. It would not remove all files that were marked to sync.
These files had the option 'always available offline' checked, but could not be unchecked.

Deleted all users under users, except for all users, default, and admin.

disabled offline files and re-enabled.

A:How to configure group policy in work group

Sneaker.Net.

Walk to each computer and set the policies on each computer. If you are not in a domain environment you are basically have to set each one manually.

My only other thought is if all the computers are exactly the same make and model and you have some type of imaging software. You could make a standard install on one computer with all the settings you want and then use that computer to image all the other computers on your network.

Trying to restrict non-admin users from seeing a lot of programs under the Start Menu. Already using the GPO for non-admin users and I'm hoping there is an area I can achieve the above. So the idea is admin account sees all the programs as normal, non-admin user restricted to only seeing a few programs on the Start menu. Can I achieve this through local group policy and if so where

Thanks

A:Local group policy start menu programs

If this is for a home, then it would be simpler to move the shortcuts from all users start menu* to the admin profile(s)**. However, hiding the shortcuts by moving them or via GPO (if there is a way to do that) would not stop users from starting the program via the Windows (file) Explorer.

GPO can restrict a user from running a program. In theory, this should work no matter how the user attempts to run the forbidden program. In reality, they are ways to start some programs restricted by GPO. That is why I wondered if this is for a home - then we might be talking about adults vs. children.

Hi,

I'm trying to create a system restore point but vista refuses to let me do this as it says it is disabled by Group Policy. Can anyone let me know how to turn this off. My machine is a home pc on my own network and i am the adminstrator for the box. I tried downloading the Group Policy Object Editor but it won't install as not compatable with my my version (Home Premium).

Can anyone help? Really want to start messing about with the look and feel of the box but not at the price of wrecking it!

Thanks in advance.

I need to use group policy to secure Vista Ultimate as I have done in Windows Server 2003 under a domain with Active Directory. However, Vista doesn't appear to let me apply group policy to a group I created but instead to just individual users or to the built-in groups of Administrators or Non-Administrators. Any ideas? I will not be using Active Directory on a Domain for this one - it is just a stand-alone PC but I have multiple users on it and I need to make it easy for administering the GP.

Try This:

Download: http://down.vista123.com/gpedit.rar

Hey all group policy disabled by System Restore The other day I wanted to create a system restore point but when I went into system properties and then the system protection tab I noticed that it says quot Restore point creation disabled by group policy quot I run vista home premium which doesn't come with the group policy editor so I have no idea how to fix it What's more wortrying is that I have no System Restore disabled by group policy idea how this happened I have been using this laptop for over a year now and previously have created restore points The thing is I haven't done so in a while so it's hard for me to narrow down what could have caused this it could've happened over months ago I installed paragon total defrag two days ago and when I did so it asked if I wanted to create a restore point which worked fine So here's some background info I have recently System Restore disabled by group policy installed a trial version of ashampoo winoptimizer but I highly doubt that I would've accidentally changed a setting in there to prevent new restore points from being created I have also started using winpatrol again I use avira antivir for my antivirus and recently upgraded from the free personal version to the premium version I already ran a few scans namely spybot ad-aware and malwarebytes plus a complete scan with avira Nothing turned up in any of them Do you think any of the programs I installed could've implemented that group policy restriction There are some other tweaking programs I've used in the past like tweakVI enhancemyvista and smart pc utilities quot vista services optimizer quot But if I had seen an option to disable restore point creation in any of them I definitely wouldn't have used it Does anybody have any clues how I can fix this Any help would be greatly appreciated cheers Pietzki

A:system restore has been turned off by group policy.

Welcome to the forum.
Some more detail is required. Do you know what virus, malware etc. it is.
It is unlikely that system restore will have any effect anyway.
There are very likely other problems, which you may not yet have found.
Presuming that you have posted this on the computer in question, click the link and do a scan.
Then post back with what it has found and the answer please, to the FIRST question.
Check ALL, after the scan and report any problems ie: access to system tools etc., including of course restore.
Unless you are sure what you are doing, may I advise you, NOT to attempt any edits of the registry.

Group policy editor dll is there, but not gpedit.msc on Vista Hom Premium 64 bit

Hmmmm I wonder if this is one of those things like ShadowExplorer where the facility is there but not accessible without a utility? I say that because I notice on Vista Home Premium 64 bit SP1 gpedit.dll is there, just not the .msc applet. Anyone know if a util is there to access it or if it's even useful on Home Premium? I'm thinking the guy who did ShadowExplorer took it upon himself to get at the goodies even though they weren't supposed to work in lesser versions. I just don't know that much about group policy stuff to know if it's generally all that useful.

(just wondering if the gpedit.dll is there for a reason other than inertia)

A:Group policy in lesser Vista versions

Hi MilesAhead,

Sorry, but there is no way to add Group Policy to those editions of Vista.

However, you usually can workaround it by adding the registry entries for the group policy instead. You can see examples of this in the tutorial section by searching for gpedit.msc. Group Policy can be very helpful.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Went to create a system restore point prior to customising my desktop. Vista wouldn't let me create a restore point and says that the function is disabled by Group Policy. After some googling this seems to be network sys admin type tool for controlling lots of machines on a network. My machine is a home pc running Vista Home Premium so not sure how this happened. I am also the system admin and seems a bit strange that i cannot change this.

Anyone have any idea's?

A:System Restore Point disable by Group Policy

Is the machine a domain member? (Is it a work PC?)

The problem certainly sounds to be policy-related, as if you've accidentally (or knowingly) applied policy on your own machine, or the domain admin has set a domain policy preventing system restore.

There is a small circle above the internet access icon when I first open Microsoft Edge or when I first turn on the computer. I am connected to the internet but I can't access outlook or some things on the task bar or the desktop.

A:Has anyone gotten the message "Windows couldn't connect to group policy service"?

Do you have smart screen turned on?Are you using a firewall?

Is it possible to set administrators to one GP and standard users to another? I want to disable Command Prompt, Task Mgr and lockout all USB and CD drives for standard users but allow administrators to access all of those.

How do i set different group polices depending on user?

Thanks in advance

A:Set Group Policy different for each user group?

Yep. As long as the policies you want to deploy to those groups are per-user (i.e. within the user configuration section of GP Editor), then you can use a tool like Microsoft's GPMC to "security filter" the effects of a GPO to a particular user group. Or, you might want to check out Desktop Policy Manager--www.sdmsoftware.com/desktop_management, which provides a simplified web interface into Group Policy and makes targeting by group much simpler (full disclosure--I work for this company).

Hey guys searching searching searching but didnt found the asnwer The problem we have alot of users and since months we have pc running windows Most of them work perfect after alot of coding but we run into some problems Some pc s dont run the computer startupscript we made a policy to run the computer wait Windows the at group network computer for and policy "Always startup logon" 7 script but on some computers it doenst work All the pc are the same have the same security groups We have another Windows 7 "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" group policy policy quot Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon quot and we have the policy quot Run startup scripts synchronously quot nbsp So Windows 7 "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" group policy again everything works on most computers but some just don t wait for the network they skip the policy because the network isn t ready yet Whats happening here Update ok so i figured out that if i add a reg setting or policy that Windows 7 "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" group policy it works but i have to wait for nbsp sec before the network pc is ready were all on the same network some people have no problems some do regsetting HKEY LOCAL MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion Winlogon quot GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue quot dword regsetting HKEY LOCAL MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Services Tcpip Parameters quot DisableDHCPMediaSense quot dword Its seconds right nog if i put it to sec the startup computerscript isnt triggered at nbsp seconds it works So its odd that some pc have no problem and some have to wait for seconds before everything works Is there a retry option in AD before it tries to push the policy again after it failed the first time

In the last few weeks I have noticed that around 30 of our 400 machines have got stuck applying Group Policy. The DISK drive light is hard on. If the machines are rebooted they get stuck at the same point after the reboot. If left alone they remain stuck. However, if you restart the machine say the next day they boot up instantly like nothing was ever wrong. I suspect it is doing whether it is doing a full group policy apply or part.

Is there anyone else experiencing such weird behaviour? I keen to find out why the disk is at 100%?

A:Windows 7 Group Policy

When the machines boot up and login, check their event viewer for more detailed error information.

My computer is not part of a domain and I don't have those issues. However, you can set a machine to reboot if group policy fails to apply. Looking at the settings of how group policy deals with failures may help.
