I did a software restriction on iexplorer in GPO and I need to back out. I removed the software restriction but some machines still are getting blocked. I looked at the rsop info and it looks removed off the machine but it still give the block error. Has anyone ran into this before? I gpupdate/forced still same issue. I need help! Im using Windows 2008 and XP\Win 7 Machines. Thanks.

Does anyone know either the registry key or someway manually to allow this software to work. Bypass the GPO somehow?
Run the command gpupdate /force and restart the desktop and check.

Hi,

Please try restarting machine.

Move the machine to a different Organizational Unit in Active Directory.

You could also try applying another GPO which whitelists IE.
