Open your group policy manager and then go to that GPO and see what it is doing...

Did you try click start>>>run>>>RSOP.MSC ?
Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Run rsop.msc which will give you the list of the settings in applied GPOs along with the GPO name.
