Server 2008 GPO Help

I had help from some members here to setup GPO to user accounts on Server 2008 back in February of this year. We setup a restriction so one account no matter what PC it logged into could only run certain exe files. In my GPO Management console when I edit the GPO assigned to that login I cannot find where we did this and in software restrictions it says nothing has been defined. I know its enforced since its been used and the PC's tell me its enforced. Where do I look to add a few exe files ?

To find out the settings run Group Policy Management tool > Select the GPO you assigned and on the right side click on "Settings". It should show you all the settings for that GPO.

Perhaps this restriction was added to a different policy. You could try running the Group Policy Modeling wizard to find out which policy the software restriction was added to. From the GP management console, right-click on the OU your test user resides in, then select "Group Policy Modeling". You can pretty much hit "next" all the way through the wizard. Once it's finished, click the "Settings" tab and you should see all the settings that apply to that user, plus the policy they were applied in. You might also need to do this for the OU the computer resides in.

running the model wizard, the results say because of security filtering my 3 GPO's are all showing up in the denied applied GPO's.

the wizard still gives me the security filtering errors but I found the hotfix that I can see the settings tab correctly so I know that the GPO is in effect that all exe files are blocked but I can not find the location of where I have a list of what is allowed, like msword.exe and excel.exe. Where do i get to this list?
