I have created a group policy that installs a hotfix reg change but causes a pop up making the user accept it every time. What did I do wrong? I know I put the /s in there!

Try using a .bat file instead using the line:
 
regedit /s \\server1\share\ignoreSOBError.reg

Yes, the .bat will call the .reg file with the /s switch
