    do you have sims on the server

    is the server also running sims for admin?

    i had a problem with a w2k server after i'd done a sims update, and GPO never worked properly after that. couldn't find the fault either.

    Why not set the Loopback section to 'Merge' rather than replace and change the link order so that your IE Homepage policy is last - that would allow your IE homepage stuff to be set AND your main Student OU policies to be set as you like.

    We have lots of policies that use Loopback here (because some suites want this and others want that...) so I've had alot of hair-raising experiences with it.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply. I did try setting it to merge as I had it before, but it never worked. I'll try adjusting the order it's applied. Thanks!

    For everyone who has reviewed this topic, thank you. I've figured it out. It WAS the loopback policy. I removed it, and everything works perfectly now. Thanks again!

    Actually lol, they never noticed. They were used to being locked down and upon checks of the school and monitoring, nobody even tried anything. Well behaved students :P
