GPO won't update, gpupdate and gpresult doesn't work

Hi and an advance thank you,

I applied a GPO to several WinXp and now a few applications are not able to
communicate with their corresponding servers.  I place some of the affected
workstations in an GPO free OU, but I still can't modify settings in
secpol.msc. After I restored the GPO from a backup, I tried gpupdate /force
and even thought it seems like it's working nothing in the background works.
All the erroneous setting are still there. I ran gpresult and it errors out
"ERROR: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password".

I manually removed a winXP from the domain and rejoined it and all seems to
work as it did, but I can't do that to all 700 workstations and need a
better solution, please help.

Also try:

Stop and DISABLE the WMI service on the machine

Then run the following commands

winmgmt /clearadap
winmgmt /resyncperf

I did what "jerseysam" suggested:
Stop and DISABLE the WMI service on the machine
    Then run the following commands
          winmgmt /clearadap
          winmgmt /resyncperf
after that I was able to run gpupdate /force and then restart the workstation. All seems to be working.
Thank you "jerseysam"
