Cannot apply GPO on Windows 10

Nnnnnn 21 Reputation points

Hello All,

Environment is : Windows Server 2008 AD & Windows 10 PC

We've deployed a user logon GPO via AD but one of Win10 user cannot applied the GPO.
We try to delete user's profile and let him re-login to auto create a new user profile, then the logon GPO can deploy successfully.
But when we restore his original files to his desktop then re-login to test GPO; It fails.
Then we think does the issue related to files permission? thus we delete + recreate the user profile again& again. And conclusion is: the GPO can deploy successfully until we do something on the C:, even if only create a new text file in his desktop, GPO will fail after relogin.

gpresult is normal, and the result of manual gpupdate same as auto deploy.

It's so strange and if anyone can provide some idea to us? Thanks so much!!!

    If possible , would you please tell how did you deploy the policy.
    I would like to do a test in my lab.
    If you can't find any errors in the gpresult , i would suggest you use the GPSVC log to do more research.
    For how to use the GPSVC log, you can refer to the following link:

    Hello All,

    Thanks all reply! I haven't deployed the windows 10 administrative templates on DC. But other PCs in same environment is normal.

    Hello All,

    The GPO can deploy successfully after deleted the Group Policy registry !
    Thus, can i confirm it caused by Registry error?

    Thanks so much for all of you !!
