Group Policy updating every 5 seconds

The following message is appearing every 5 seconds in the System Events Log.  The logs are mostly filled with these items leaving little room for other, perhaps important, information.

The Group Policy settings for the computer were processed successfully. There were no changes detected since the last successful processing of Group Policy.

Any help sorting out why this is happening would be appreciated!

This technet article is very helpful from M$ regarding the Intervals of GP refresh.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc940895.aspx

It goes into depth about what the domain controller should be set to. You don't want to change the refresh interval drastically so that it is take days to push out new GP's.

Please check :

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy

All the enabled in this & one below:
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy

The only possibility is that you are not the only admin & someone did something ;)
What you are looking for is in all the enabled policies if someone has set the time different?
