GPO Settings

Hi,
On an SBS 2008 I ran the RSOP wizard and discovered that none of the Users Settings from a GPO are being applied. The reason given is Access Denied (Security Filtering). I checked that the Security Filtering was correctly set, and it was. Links to the GPOs are enabled, and the GPOs themselves are enabled. I set this particular GPO to "Enforced", yet it still does not get applied. The GPO which I was investigating when I discovered this situation is applied to a User group containing all of the users on our network. All of the Computer settings appear to be getting applied as intended.
Where do I go from here?
Thanks for any help, Bill

the user group that you added to the permissions list.  Is it set to Read AND apply?

A deny ALWAYS over rules  an allow.  Are there any groups that you denied that those members might be a member of as well?

>>"is applied to a User group containing all of the users on our network"
Group? Is it linked to the OU containing a the users? Just a clarification of terms.

Try running GPResult on a PC with one of the user accounts and see if that provides more information.
If you made changes the updated policy will not be applied to a workstation for about 90 minutes or run gpupdate /force and log off and on.

Just to add.

Seems like permissions issue on GPO.
