What is the policy you have applied why do you want to run gpupdate /force.There are certain policy which will not take effect unless to reboot the client computer if policy is applied computer based or if the policy is applied to users then you need to relogin.

By default, computer Group Policy is updated in the background every 90 minutes, with a random offset of 0 to 30 minutes. In addition to background updates, Group Policy for the computer is always updated when the system starts. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc940895.aspx.
