I (as a proffesor) use Virtual PC in classroom simulating Windows XP connecting to domain on Windows Server 2003. I have created organizational unit in active directory and applied group policy with for exampe two restrictions: Control Panel disabled and not allowing Windows Movie Maker to run (in computer section). On older machines (P4~) group policy mainly have not been appied! Last school year (2011/12) I have woked in newer classroom- dual core processors... and everything has worked perfectly- "old" problem occured again when I have tried same thing with Windows Server 2008. Than I have "concluded" that "problem" is due to weak processor performance. This year "problem" occured in the "new" classroom with dual core processors- on almost all (except 2) computers! Can someone help me with this issue?. /in some similar problems as a solution was suggested changing network settings which I have tried but with no result.../
Thank You in advance, sincerely Drago Percic

As above poster mentioned, in the VM which doesn’t apply group policies, run “gpresult /r” and post the output.
There are some things you may want to check:
Make sure the VM computer account is in Group Policy OU.
Make sure the VM computer account has both “Read” and “Apply Group Policy” permission for these group policies.
For more information please refer to following MS articles to troubleshoot group policy issues:

/Sorry for slow response/ Thak's to both of You!
Result for "gpresult" is: (I have not gpresult /r version)
INFO: The policy object does not exist
On the other machine(where policies are working) everything works OK!- policies are displayed... (first sign that things would not work is slow logging). Difference which i have spotted is that on the machine which has applied group policies in guest virtual machines Virtual Machine Additions were not installed! For now this is a SOLUTION to my problem!!! (I have tested this configuration on several machines in this classroom and it works; mentioned SOLUTION does not work on my laptop with Windows Home Premium 64b and Virtual PC installed on it (I wanted to install Virtual PC 2007 (which is installed in classroom) to my laptop but maybe some other time...).
Thank You again!
