Hi,
A java virtual machine by MSI file push by a GPO (machine configuration) is causing this problem on all the computer where it is pushed.   The computer jam before login on a java installation windows and just stay there.  Java version 13 push on windows XP with java version 11 installed.
Even if we believe it not been fully installed we tried a delete installation push in the same way, And now we have a jam computer this time on a java desinstallation windows.  
Now how to get rid of it and retrieve access to the computer?

Someone know if there is a way to see a step by step on the computer when the GPOs are being push on a computer and hopefully with possibility to accept or refuse one GPO.?

In short...  presuming Java installer uses windows installer package for the .msi...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer

Add string "Logging" with value "voicewarmup" and DWORD "Debug" with value "3"

Log should end up at:
%windir%\temp\MSI*.log

voicewarmup is actually variables interestingly arranged.  A little more info here:
