Help doagnosing why Group Policy not applying on one machine

I have one desktop which seems to not be getting the group policies. All my machines are Windows 7 Enterprise. When I manually do a gpupdate /force it shows successful but I don't see any of the changes being implemented. How would I diagnose where the problem is.

I checked the event log on that machine. There is an event source SceCli which says "security policy in the Group policy objects has been applied successfully"

There is another entry source gupdate which says "The description for Event ID 0 from source gupdate cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

Service stopped"

Not sure if that is related to the problem.

Sorry. Seems I had an issue with this user being moved from a group which I didn't realized. Sorry for the trouble.

Thanks,

Hi

Is this a policy for users or computers?

If for computers, is this particulair pc in the AD-group of pc;s where the GPO should apply?

If for users, same issue. Is this particulair user member of the group the GPO should apply?

I would run RSOP /h Filepath.html and look at that.
See what policies are applying.

You can run the Group Policy Result Wizard also from within GPMC and target that computer.

You should see if the policies are being seen at all.

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

yes. It is part of both the computer and user AD groups. Other computer and users in the same AD group are working.

I tried the command RSOP /h Filepath.html and received the following result:

The RSoP snap-in was unable to generate the computer's data due to insufficient permissions. The snap-in will continue to start but only the user's data will be displayed.

Access denied.

Run CMD as a domain Admin
then enter the command RSOP or just use the Group Policy Result within GPMC

Note that the Filepath should be c:\file.html

what's interesting is that the RSOp did come up with the user configurations and some of the policies were applied but a couple weren't. I would like to figure out why they were not.

When I use the Group Policy Results Wizard in the GPM and choose this computer and username the summary shows under user Configuration that these GPO are applied.

But I can see from looking at her machine that they were NOT applied.

The problem was actually as a result of a change that was done on my network which I had not realized
