  • correct - the "true" group policies (which do not tattoo the registry) will no longer be in effect.

  • Hi,

    Sometimes you may need to remove Group Policy settings manually from disjoined clients. Check the following Registry keys, if any exists, try to remove them.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\policies
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\policies
    HKEY_ CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies

    If you have configured Group Policy Preference, it will not be removed automatically too. Please record GPP settings and let us know the detailed policies so that we could help you find them out in Registry.

    It’s also suggested to collect a copy of GPMC report if you couldn’t clear any policy. On DC, open GPMC, right-click Group Policy Result, choose Group Policy Result Wizard, follow the wizard to collect a report of the client system. When it finish, right-click in the right-panel, choose Save Report, and use Windows Live SkyDrive (http://www.skydrive.live.com/) to upload the file and then give us the download address. 

    Thanks.
