Reset Group Policy to vanilla template

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
We have a number of group policies in place. However, after doing a bit of reconciling and clean up I found some inconsistencies with the end users. some of the new users are getting different results from the older (Pre-cleanup) users. There are many like the example below.
An example: If I had a policy that was applied that was set to "Enable", then my new policy was set for "Not configured". The result would be users that had the "Enable" applied before is therefor still enabled, because in order to remove it, the policy would have to be disabled.

Any suggestions, it there a way to default all policies and push them out to the users and computers then re-link the GP's that we want to use or an I way off with my thinking.

Thank you
