GPO to Remote Site

I created some GPOs and deleted some old ones from my domain. The GPOs I deleted were being used to configure IE proxy settings and the new one did the same thing with a few other additions. Now that I deleted them the remote sites lost their proxy settings and didn't apply the new GPO with the same settings. When I run GPresult on one of the W2k Pro PCs it says that it is still applying the GPOs that are now deleted. Another PC says that it doesn't see the new or the old GPOs. This site doesn't have a DC. Any ideas?

I don't know the topology of your network, but it seems to me that you need to have a domain controller in your site.
The changes you made to your domain may not have replicated to your network PCs.

56K line. TCP/IP Ethernet.

I thought that myself because I set up the PC here at the corporate location and then installed the PC at the remote. But what I find curious is it knew the GPO was changed but it won't apply any new ones.

Well as it turns out there is far more to this problem than I expected. I removed this PC from Active Directory and then removed the PC from the domain. Then I created the computer account in Active Directory and rejoined the PC into the domain and it didn't change one single thing. Apparently the PC is holding the settings and won't let go. If anyone has any ideas let me know.

I just realized that I never graded this answer since no one knew the answer. You have to disable Slow Link Detection at the PC.
