    We had issues like that maybe 1 or 2 years ago but it happened randomly on some machines. Turned out the security database was corrupt on those stations. There are tools to analyze and report the state of the database, start by searching for secedit. Don't know if this is your problem but at least you could rule it out by looking.

    Chances are if ALL machines are doing it then 99% chance its server related, if only a couple then what jsnetman said is another avenue to explore.

    I hate GP sometimes

    Could be an answer to some random problems I'm having here.

    enforce will do the following

    Enforced: This was previously referred to in Win2K as "No Override". The Enforced flag is set on a GPO link using the GPMC. Essentially what is does is say, "If there are any conflicting policy settings on downstream GPOs (GPOs processed after the enforced GPO), those settings will always be overridden". Essentially how this works is that any GPO links that are marked as Enforced, will be moved to the bottom of the Group Policy processing list. This ensures that the enforced policy is always processed last, and thus "wins" over any downstream GPOs. Enforced GPOs will override Block Inheritance (described next).

    Had probs with redirection of folders with some strange error code but never got to sorting it out, totally random! Tend to encourage users to use their mapped drives

    Also IE proxy settings, only worked when had no unset GPO after it. As if they was no such thing as an unset proxy entry.

    Glad to hear you sorted it GPO are not the best thing, bring on scripts (well ok when they work)
