I usually delete these keys from the registry when I want to reset or get rid of policies that have already applied and can't remove:

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft
HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
