I had set the group policy to not allow my users to add sites to the Trusted Sites list in IE. I was having issue doing it for them via GPO so I disabled that function.

Some systems have picked it up and I know now login and add sites for them manually.

I've got 1 system that still has that area disabled.

I've tried the following.

GPUPDATE
GPUPDATE /force
GPUPDATE /sync

gpresult show the correct policy is being a applied and none others coming from the correct system which is my primary DC.

The computer is in the Computers OU along with everyone else.

I've tried removing the system from the network into a workgroup and then adding it back to the domain.

At this point I don't know what else to try?

This is a WinXP SP2 and the DC is a server 2003 machine.

try to reset IE to default settings:
RIES restores the default settings of the following features:

" Home pages
" Search scopes
" Browsing history
" Form data
" Passwords
" Appearance settings
" Toolbars
" ActiveX controls

To run RIES from IE7, goto Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab and click on the reset button. If Internet Explorer cant be started, you can access RIES from Internet Options in Control Panel.
