in win2008 (an newer) you may use the GPO-result-feature at the bottom of the gpo-configuration-mmc.
create a report for a specified user and have a look for the applied gpo's

Thanks Ove. That only shows applocker policies if they apply to that computer. I need to be able to see all applocker settings no matter who they apply to.

There is a search in GP http://blogs.technet.com/b/grouppolicy/archive/2009/03/13/search-gpo-how-to-find-a-group-policy-object.aspx

...looking in my lab doesn't look like you can search for applocker, you can check though.  That feature can be improved for sure (they should let you pick the setting)

I was looking at the GP powershell cmdlets and didn't see a function.  Darren may have one in his  http://www.sdmsoftware.com/powershell/new-version-of-gpmc-powershell-cmdlets-released/

I'm going to add the powershell zone too.

Thanks

You might want to give the GPMC scripts a try. I think there may be one that does what your looking for called "List GPO by policy extension"

You may also "grep" through the folder c:\Windows\sysvol\domain\Policies and it's subfolders for the special keywords.

We are looking into GPO Compare to do this! Thanks!
