How can i make changes to the default policy instead of making a new group policy. I can't work this out that why is it that when I run rsop.msc on the client machines it shows me default poicy and the policy that I created. I want to know in what order does it process the policies,  if it is the default policy that it applies first then how can I make changes to the default poicy instead of making new one. If making changed to default policy is not allowed, then how can i disable the default policy so that only one policy apperas when I run rsop.msc on my client machines.

Can some one help me please

    A little reading may help you understand the process:

    You can also use the gpresult.exe to discover what policies are being applied, and when..

    Gpresult.exe is a command-line tool that tells you the last time Group Policy was applied to the system as well as what GPOs were used and in what order they were used. You can also see what was not used because of filtering. Gpresult can be used locally as well as on a remote system.
