Have you checked the event viewer on the computers to see why they are not getting the script pushed to them? Also you can try rsop.msc which will also give you some indication on why the script is not working.

I have also seen computers not picking up the policys from duplicate SID's on the network. Removing from the domain and re-adding will not change the SID. You can download NewSIDv4, run it on the computers, re-join the domain and push the script again.
