How you configured the homepage in GPO? Through Preferences or Admin Template -> Win Components ?

@ Sunil ,This is not happening for all users so i think the policy is set ok ,what do u think?

@ Senior system engineer,do you want to to run GPResult /R form the effected user's PC or any PC?

GPResult /R on an affected system would be helpful. Make sure the GPO required for the home page setting is listed as applied.
Also check if your domain controllers are in sync.
