I hae been receving error on my windows xp clients that state error Userenv 1085 (The Group Policy client-side extension Security failed to execute. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.) and
SceCli 1202 (Security policies were propagated with warning. 0x4b8 : An extended error has occurred.

For best results in resolving this event, log on with a non-administrative account and search for "Troubleshooting Event 1202's".)

I have 2 win2k3 dc's and currently 13 xp sp2 clients. The userenv log shows the following in debug mode (I have cut out all but the portion that pertains to the error:
