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?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The GPO could be corrupt as well.

Good point dariusg.

Run GPOTOOL to verify none of your GPOs are corrupted.
