Hi,

I have a SBS 2008 environment and would like to start from scratch with Group Policy.

Is there a way to reset group policy to just being the default settings easily? I.e nothing enforced?

Open the GPMC.msc and remove all gpo's from all the trees. This is the easiest I can think of.

In the case of SBS 2008, there are a number of GPOs that are configured by default.  Assuming you want to get back to this state, you could get back to it if you made a backup of your GPOs before you made changes, or you would just have to examine what you have and compare them to a default list.  Here's a list you can use as reference:
