Windows 2003 Group Policy

We have a new customer who has a Windows 2003 Domain Controller and is using Group Policies to limit a number of client-desktop functions.  While I've been able to locate most of the policies, one of the policies isn't configured according to the Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/ and reviewing the System Restore is in its default mode of "Not Configured".
I also looked at the Refresh rate and Group Policies are set to refresh every 30 minutes.

Ultimately, none of their computers are able to perform a system restore within any of the desktop systems.  The message recieved is, "The administrator has disabled System Restore using Group Policies.  Please contact your Systems Administrator."
Has anyone experienced a Group Policy that appears to be enabled but according to the actual Policy, isn't?  If so, will  you please share your solution here?  Thank you in advance.

Thank you for the prompt response.  Hmmm...  Of course.  I read the potential solution and I should have considered this.  Glad someone did though.  I should know something within 24 hours.  I'll post my results here.
