I have dealt with GPOs for years. If Windows is unable to run a GPO, it 
will log an error at boot and/or at user logon in either the system 
event log or the application event log. Also, have you logged into the 
workstation as an administrator and done "gpupdate /force" in a command 
prompt? That is key to pulling in settings if you do not want to wait 
for a refresh.
