What does this mean when setting a GPO?   Filtering:  Not Applied (Empty)

I created a GPO to set "use popup blocker" to enabled. The setting is located under "user policy".

So I added my system name and my username under "security filtering", and linked the gpo to the OU's that my system name and username are located.

I've forced a replication in sites and services, and ran gpupdate /force and rebooted multiple times. But the gpo still shows up under : The following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered out.

Filtering:  Not Applied (Empty)


I have no idea what this means and why the gpo will not get applied.

I have seen this when a policy being applied is empty.  For example, someone creates a user policy and the policy is being assigned to computer.  The computer reads the GPO and determines that while the policy is being assigned that there really isn't anything that it needs to do as this is really a user policy.

Are you sure that you are looking at the USER part of GPRESULTS and not the workstation part?
