How can I tell what Group Policy is affecting my Windows Firewall.

When laptops on my LAN are disconnected from the the network, Windows Firewall becomes disabled and all options are greyed out. It says "For your security, some settings are controlled by Group Policy"
If I run gpresult I see two policies affecting the machine. When I edit these group policies, nether of them are listed as being applied by my Global Catalog Server, BACB, yet gpresult says they were applied from BACB. How can I find where this Group Policy is coming from?

Add in the ?Resultant set of policy?

Or a quicker way to load the Resultant set of policy MMC as Pete shows above is enter RSOP.MSC at the Run prompt.
