Why does Group Policy Fail to Update?

We are having an odd problem at our business.  Group policy fails to update with Event IDs 5719, 1129, and 1055 to all of our computers.  However, if we put a cheap router or switch inline between the computer and our network there are no problems.  All computers are running Windows 7 and we have a Cisco switch infrastructure.  

Additionally, we have tried the hotfix Microsoft suggests per KB article 2459530 with no luck.

Thanks in advance for any help.

What is the configuration on your Cisco switch ports. You should be running spanning-tree portfast for all ports connected to your endpoints. Without it the ports take about 45 seconds to start passing traffic, and your PCs probably boot faster than that.

We switched a couple of the switches over to portfast last night for testing and that did resolve the issue.  But while researching it online we were finding conflicting reports on this being the best practice setup.  We did also enable BPDU guard on the switches.
