Removing Group Policy on machines

Using ScriptLogic's Desktop Authority, I accidently sent out a Group Policy script I was working on for some machines.  It only managed to get to a few machines before I removed it from the server and replicated the old script back again.  But now I can't seem to get those machines that got the policy to revert back.

I've rebooted and done the gpupdate /force commands and they are still holding those settings.  Any ideas to clear them without having to reimage the machines would be appreciated.  It is a mixture of Windows XP and Vista machines.

Thanks!

Depending on what you put out there. If the scritp changed the settings you would need to create a script to revert the settings back to normal.

One of D.A.s settings is when to run scripts. Make sure that it is set to run each login and not each day.

That could be fun to remember...I deleted out the script when the problem started since it was only a test.

When it comes to scripts AD doesn't know or really care what the script does to the systems since it is just deploying the scripts created not actually creating the scripts so to revert back you would need to create a script to revert the systems back.

You need to create a script that will revert the changes not create the same script.

Trying to do it within Desktop Authority didn't work, working directly from Group Policy on the Win 2003 server did.  Thanks for the help, full points awarded.
