Resetting Local Group Policy on an End Device

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda RMM Support Team acknowledges that the Local Group Policy sometimes needs to be reset to default. This could be done at our request for testing or if partners are decommissioning a device from a site. Please follow the steps below to remove the group policy from Windows end devices.

Group Policies at a Local Level

  • Open CMD Prompt as Administrator
  • Run these two commands

RD /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicyUsers"
RD /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicy"
  • This will reset the Group Policy to default after running this command
gpupdate /force

Group Policies applied via Domain

If your device was Domain Joined and the policy changes were done from the Domain Configuration Guide, you can script the changes in a BAT file with the following information.

DEL /S /F /Q "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Group Policy\History\*.*"
REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy /f
REG DELETE HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft /f
REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies /f
REG DELETE HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies /f
REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft /f
REG DELETE "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects" /f
DEL /F /Q C:\WINDOWS\security\Database\secedit.sdb
