Untested Tip: GPupdate /force with more teeth for XP

So when you move a user or computer around in AD.. the target computer doesn’t know it’s been moved for a while. Sometimes, a LONG while. So, if you wanted to, you might think you could just type in gpupdate /force and it would “reset” where the computer thought it was in AD. That’s true for Vista. But XP (including XP/SP2) doesn’t honor this request. This hotfix apparently bridges that gap:

(Again, I haven’t directly tested this one.)
