how to force Group Policy - Peferences - Control Panel settings

I am trying to set up a few Group Policy - Peferences - Control Panel settings (location of Temporary IE files, multiple home pages for IE7, etc). This is done on the users level. Targeting is enabled.
Even though I don't see errors in the application log, these settings don't take effect.

It may be worth running gpresult from a command line to check if the system is running the neccessary group policy objects.

Firs things first.

Is the GPO linked to the correct OU?
IS the GPO enabled?
Have you done gpupdate /force on the clients
Rebooted a few times?

As was stated above run gpresult and see if the policy is being applied or filtered out.

If it is being applied have you tried the policy on another machine to see if its enforced?

I have done most of it but will double-check all of them. What is a utility in Vista that alllows saving RSoP in HTML format? Did not reboot since it was User Configuration.
P.S. My question is geared more to a generic answer: yes, I have done it (change IE temp files, set multiple home pages), this is the right place in GP to do it.
