Open up Group Policy Management Console > Find the OU your domain computers are in > right-click and click on 'Link and existing GPO' > choose your new policy

That should do it.

@Muhammad, thanks for your quick response. Do I link it to the default Domain policy?

Yes. You need to link it to the ou containing your computer objects.

No it shouldn't. What other policies do you have that would possibly conflict?
