    Just open two instances of Group Policy Management, then select Group Policy Objects > (select GPO), then select the 'Settings' tab and select 'show all'.

    Use Group Policy Management Console to save the GPO's as XML files, open them in Notepad++ and press Alt-D to compare the files.

    Taken from:

    active directory - GPO Comparison Tool - Server Fault

    Also Group Policy Compare - Group Policy Management Tools - SDM Software | Group Policy Management & Administration Tools from the same thread.

    Thanks for your reply guys - I'm after a really simple way of doing it as we have quite a few and manually going through each one will take a while.
    I will have a look at the Notepad++ suggestion and see what I can do!
