Log onto a server as the domain Administrator.

Open up GPMC and go to Group Policy Objects. Then left click on your GPO giving the accessed denied message. Click on delegation and remove all security groups. Then add back Domain admins (giving full control).

If this works, you can then add back the security groups/users needing read/apply GPO

Do you have appropriate permissions under the delegation tab for your applicable GPO?
