Rcent Group Policy broke certificates

Hello experts - I recently deployed a desktop security policy using a Server 2008R2 GPO.  It contains hundreds of settings, most of which worked fine.  I am having a problem with certificates however.  Several users were suddenly unable to access websites that depend on certificates and/or key fobs for security.  I am not certain which of the hundreds of settings might have caused this though...none of them say "Make Security Certificates Stop Working."  Excluding the user allows the certificate to work without having to reinstall it.  Has anyone come across this problem?

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

Hi Ded

There are no specific error messages, users are just unable to access websites that require a locally installed security certificate.  When I run the gpresult /h command I see the policies being successfully applied.

I'm afraid that didn't work for us.  I don't think its a matter of getting the certificate applied, it seems more related to user rights since the websites immediately begin working once the policy is removed.  I need to identify the specific setting that is preventing local users (in one case a local admin) from being able to use them.
