Applied GPO Showing up multiple times in gpresult

Last Modified: 2012-07-13
I have a problem with GPO's running multiple times at login which is causing an auditing program to run and stop when the login script runs a second and third time. We are on a 2003 domain and we have 3 sites. I have found virtually zip about my specific issue although I did find a few similar issues caused by slow links. This is not a slow link issue.

I've been able to apply a 2nd group policy that only runs the Auditing program. It is working properly and showing up only once in GPResult. The Primary policy still shows up 3 times.

Loopback processing mode has been disabled to try to remedy this. To no avail.

-gpresult output shows... (Only 1 for each policy should show. One of my policies are showing up 3 times which subsequently means the login script runs 3 times as well.)
Applied Group Policy Objects
     Company Policy
     Company Policy
     Company Policy
     AuditRun Policy

-The slow link threshold is set to 500 kbps ....
-Connected over slow link?: No (Shown in gpresult)

-The server is local to the computer on 1Gbps.

-Windows XP and Windows 7 show the same issue with the same GPO being run multiple times at login.

Thanks in advance for the person that finds the solution to my aggravating problem.
