For 2000,

secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy

or

secedit /refreshpolicy user_policy

For 2003,

gpupdate /force
 
but there is no gpupdate on either my sbs 2003, or my win xp pro sp2.

and I don't see any place to get it from microsoft.  

maybe a part of support tools?

thanks

jon

That is odd, you should be able to go to start, run, type gpupdate /enforce and press enter and it should run, no need for any add-ons. Perhaps someone has somehow disabled the use of those utilities at the domain or site level, if so, that would affect the admin account as well.
