You could reboot the machine, or use something like psexec, there are other methods discussed here

If you do nothing the GPO refresh cycle will happen ever 90 minutes (with a random 30 minute offset)

Thanks

Wait 90 minutes (plus 30 minute random time).

Or remotely run gpupdate (using psexecute or SPECOPS Gpupdate Free).

Updates are auto in intervales between 30 and 90 minutes. If you need to force some specific machine, use this command: gpupdate /force.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I would just make sure that your user switch off their pc's when they finish work and when the come in the update will be aplied. The 90 minute thing only works if syncing is occuring as default as this may be set up differently depending on speed of links between DC and computers. As some places have a delay set up for several hours or non at all.

Here is the specops links:

This allows you to right click an OU in Active Directory Users and Computers and select Gpupdate. It will manually refresh all of your computers.
