Event ID 1091 and 1704

I have inheritted a single DC running Server 2003 that was logging Event ID 1058 and 1030 every five minutes. I did all the troubleshooting I could find searching in the MS and EE KB. After spending what seemed like a couple of years trying in vain to fix it, I had had enough. So, I used dcgpofix to "restore the Group Policy objects to their original state after initial installation". I was able to run it successfully and the 1058 and 1030 events are now gone. However, now every five min I get a 1704 and 1091 IDs. I haven't done anything since running the dcgpofix. I did run the gpotool.exe with the result below. Not sure where to go from here.

1704's are stating that GPO processing took place (a good thing)

The 1091's are addressed in the following MS KB

The 1704's shouldnt happen every 5 min though - Try the fix from the KB and see if the frequency of the 1704's go down.

If you are still having issues the following is a workaround:
To workaround this issue, reset HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GPExtensions\{827D319E-6EAC-11D2-A4EA-00C04F79F83A}\MaxNoGPOListChangesInterval to decimal 960 (0x3c0), 16 hours, the default for this REG_DWORD data type.
