I'm not sure if GPO can cause this..

Could you check this link, which says this is a possible virus..  Look at the last comment by the requestor

You are right. it is not related to the GPO at all.

It was a virus and I remove it using the following command in the command prompt

sfc /scannow

*with space following sfc
