Dear Tanveer,

this is the GPO deployment of windows 2003 to win 7

it's a common issue

check the GP deployment article for windows 7 and vista both are same

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766208(WS.10).aspx


the second thing is u can upgrade sceman instead of goil all above... upgrade your windows 2003 machine schema to windows 2008 R2 schema... it's quite easy...

Forest Schema preparation
Before you can add a domain controller that is running Windows Server 2008 to an Active Directory environment that is running Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003, you must update the Active Directory schema. You must update the schema from the domain controller that hosts the schema operations master role (also known as flexible single master operations or FSMO). If you are performing an unattended installation of Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) with Windows Server 2008, you must update the schema before you install the operating system. For normal installations, you must update the schema after you run Setup and before you install AD DS.
Use the following procedure to update the Windows Server 2003 Active Directory schema for Windows Server 2008.
Membership in Enterprise Admins, Schema Admins, and Domain Admins for the domain that contains the schema master is required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.
To prepare the forest schema for Windows Server 2008
 
Log on to the schema master as a member of the Enterprise Admins, Schema Admins, and Domain Admins groups.
Insert the Windows Server 2008 DVD into the CD/DVD drive. Copy the content of the \sources\adprep folder to an Adprep folder on the schema master.
Open a command prompt, and then change directories to the Adprep folder.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
adprep /forestprep
(Optional) If you plan to install a read-only domain controller (RODC) in any domain in the forest, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
adprep /rodcprep
Allow the operation to complete, and then allow the changes to replicate throughout the forest before you prepare any domains for a domain controller that runs Windows Server 2008.
 

read the article completely... before upgrade the schema.. which cannot revertible...

Another thing to consider is the IE version.

Since IE8 some settings on Internet Explorer Maintenance are not applied. And I think none in IE 10 and IE 11

You can use the IEAK (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/hh779628) or some  registry changes through script (what I did).

Thanks for your suggestion, active directory we don't want to upgrade, we used our Manage Engine (which have option to push the Internet Explore changes to clients machine) to push the register changes to all the machines and its working fine now.

Regards,

Tanveer.
