Registry Failed - Unspecified error


  • Hello,

    All PCs in our domain, have one Computer policy error. by Run gpupdate /force the User Policy update has completed successfully but the Computer Policy could not be updated successfully. 

    by run rsop.msc all the GPO applied successfully. However on the Error information Tap, in the Component Status the Registry failed with unspecified error.

    From gpupdate /force I can see the  CN of the GPO that failed and I found its location on the server.


    I don't know what is about and how to fix it. I found this thread 

    the guy said that he fixed it by using a third party tool reg edit tool to remove the roague registry settings from the "Registry.pol" file in the GP. 

    I am not sure if the issue is the same with the above threat.

    Could you please advise/help ?
