Group policy has changed on some workstations

I have a computer group policy that sets the I.E home page to our SharePoint site. I have had Windows 7 and XP computers that some how the home page has be set to something else. How can I get the GP to be applied again to these computers?

Attached is a pic of the I.E. Options page.

Open up run command, type: gpupdate /force, reboot the pc.  Also on the workstation the GP could be getting blocked by windows firewall or see if the antivirus is causing an issue.

from the CMD you can run gpresult on windows xp and gpresult /r on windows 7 to know which group policy applied, then you can go to your active directory to check each gpo applied to check the settings

you may run gpupdate /force on the logon script or use the microsoft fixit http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9698485

When I ran gpupdate /force it seems to have removed the GPO from this laptop. Now I am able to go into I.E options and manually change the Home page.
