Group policy and IE compatibility view

I've used group policy to force several sites into compatibility view.  One of these sites has been updated and will no longer function in compatibility view.  I've removed it from the list in GP, but it is not being removed on the workstation.  I added the sites via policies\administrative templates\windows components\internet explorer.  As you probably know, when you add sites this way, they don't actually show up in the compatibility list on the individual workstations, but it does function properly in compatibility view.  Now that I've removed it from the list in GP, I have to go to each workstation, add it manually, then remove it.  It's the only way I've found to get it out of there.  No a huge deal, but I have 14 bazillion machines to do, at multiple locations.  Anyone run into this?  Any solutions?

You could try and use GPO preferences and the registry

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\PolicyList

That's a good thought.  Thank you.  I will try it in the morning.
