    I have tried that, however the user logging in on the PC does not have admin access, so the registry does not get updated. I am trying to update a reg key under HKEY_CURRENT_USER

    Make sure the gpo applies to user and not the machine.

    Since it under user, should the GPO still be signed to OU with PCs or does it need to be assigned to an user OU?

    GPO is not working. Even when I log into PC with an account that has admin access.
