Screen Saver Lockout Policy not applying to client

Hello All,

Environment: Windows 7, Windows 2003 DC and Windows 2008 DC

I have setup the ScreenSaver lockout on my Default Domain policy. The Policy is applying properly to all clients except for one (so far).

I have opened the RSOP.msc on this particular client and verified that all settings were there. I have also checked on the Group Policy events on the Event Logs and all the policies are applying without errors. I have specified a screensaver file on my policy and I have verified that this file is working properly on this client by executing it.

Does someone has an idea of what might be happening?

What can I do next to further troubleshoot this issue?

Hey Patricksr1972, I have taken the policy out of the Default Domain Policy and created another one with the Screen Lock out settings and applied it to a test OU were I have placed the workstation, still did not work.

I recalled it was a computer that I had replaced recently and started to install all pending updates. After I rebooted a couple of times to apply the updates, left the workstation 15 idle and the screensaver kicked in with the lockout.

Can you show 2 printscreens?

1x GPO Settings for the policy?
1x GPO Scope settings?

The Policy is very large so I printed portion of the Screen Saver settings. The Scope is also attached.

Let me know anything else you may need.

Clear. Please try this.
Get the policy out of domain policy and create a new one.
Your settings look ok except the security filtering as i remember correctly.
Please try to filter it by an indivudal user account instead of security group.
