SYMPTOMS

When you enable a Group Policy setting in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or in Microsoft Windows XP, all the check boxes that appear on the Group Policy setting are not selected. However, when you enable a Group Policy setting in Windows Vista, all the check boxes that appear on the Group Policy setting are selected.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because the Windows Vista Group Policy Object Editor differs from the Windows Server 2003 Group Policy Object Editor and from the Windows XP Group Policy Object Editor. By default, all the check boxes that appear on the Group Policy setting are selected when you enable a Group Policy setting in Windows Vista.
