Cleaning up Group Policy's.

We have a domain controller that is offering group policies. We found that two policies were not created correctly by using gpotool from the Server Resource Kit. I deleted the two policies, and ran gpupdate /force and gpotool is still showing the policies as being in place. We rebooted the server with the same result. Is there a way to clean up these deleted policies??

I'm guessing you did this with a domain admin account but it could be a permission issue
"When you delete a GPO, Group Policy Management attempts to delete all links to that GPO in the domain of the GPO. However, to delete a link to a GPO, you must have permission to link Group Policy objects for the organizational unit or domain. If you do not have rights to delete a link, the GPO will be deleted, but the link will remain. Links from other domains and sites are not deleted. The link to a deleted GPO appears in Group Policy Management as Not Found. To delete Not Found links, you must either have permission on the site, domain or organizational unit containing the link, or ask someone with sufficient rights to delete "
