I have each time gpupdate /force to the PC, this again sometimes takes for ever to apply.

updating user policies please wait-12

I have found it works for a short period time, next time I restart with the same policy slow speeds.

This is even without any Computer Policies applied.

My Question, and forgive me for putting it here, I had no idea where else to put it, I thought about tutorials, but I know this... Whenever I check Windows Update, I get a message that says "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because updates on this computer are controlled by your system administrator". "Windows 7" and related materials are trademarks of Microsoft Corp.

Some of the Windows 7 PC’s have been having very slow start-up times, i.e. This only started yesterday morning, I have not changed any of the GPO’s nor have I made any adjustments to the network.

After you make changes to group policies, you may want the changes to be applied immediately, without waiting for the default update interval (90 minutes on domain members and 5 minutes on domain controllers) or without restarting the computer.

Normally, User Group Policy is refreshed at logon and Computer Group Policy is refreshed at machine reboot.I have also checked the event log to see if anything out of the ordinary is appearing on both the client and servers nothing to exciting in that either.Applications and Services Logs - Operational I have also gone through the system and application logs, nothing in that either.It seems to affect random users, for example one office PC was very slow yesterday, today it is acting normal.The problem is with at start-up it is saying please wait, I have enabled Verbose mode to see what it is actually getting stuck at.All our GP settings apply perfectly on our Dell desktops and have never had any issues until now.
