GPO - hide clock - and now can't unhide - Windows Server 2008R

We re-did our GPO's and hid the clock in the system tray.  We then undid the GPO and new users will get a clock on their desktop but it won't show up for old users who had it before.  Any thoughts?

Would it have been better to do this with Group  Policy Preferences than a GPO?

change the gpo from not configured to disabled, once group policy is updated i.e. next logon the clock will show.. if you simply do a gpupdate /force then you have to restart explorer.exe
