We are moving twenty plus computers to a new domain.  I want to completely remove any group policy settings from the old domain going to the new one.  I know in a perfect world if it unjoins correctly it should do this but I know I have had cases where I have had to fix old GP items.  Is there a script to remove old settings.  I know about the one for offline file cache database but is there any others.

I've done this en masse before and had no trouble what so ever with residual global policies.  Once they're on the new domain you could run gpupdate to force an update of policies.

I found the secedit script on a posting and I will use that.  


secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose
