We are planning on deploying Windows 7 Pro in our offices this coming year and I have been in the process of building my Windows 7 group policies from scratch by using the XP policies as a template. I have 3 policies that I create the standard lockdown, administrative mode, and IT. As I'm building the policies and the have the Group Policy editor open, whatever changes that I make do apply on my local machine, but after I save and upload the policies and apply them to machines the policy status in the Zen Notify Icon says that they have applied, but in function no policies have applied. I'm getting ready to start adding my Allow These Executables list but don't want to waste the time if the desktop look and feel and general access features aren't being applied correctly to the machines. Is there anything that I can check to see why this isn't working correctly?
