Windows xp group policy not updating

Rated 3.87/5 based on 952 customer reviews

Use the Group Policy Editor to set the update policy override for the Google Chrome Binaries application and try again;” do you even have to in the first place?

Although updating any software always runs the risk (however small) of breaking something, web browsers are a tool you want to keep as up-to-the-minute updated as possible so you can minimize the threat of zero-day exploits and security holes.

The first place to check is the Scope Tab on the Group Policy Object (GPO).

If you are configuring a computer side setting, make sure the GPO is linked to the Organization Unit (OU) that contains the computer.

In my initial testing of Windows 7, I was a little disturbed to find that a default install of Windows 7 Enterprise did not include a default screen saver when a user would log in.

I was also a little miffed that (known as the “Windows XP” screen saver in Windows XP and “Windows Logo” screen saver in Windows Vista) was also nowhere to be found when I searched the file system.

In fact, some of the steps described here will work for almost all Google applications available, but for this guide we will focus entirely on Google Chrome.

This can be either a new GPO or an existing GPO that may already have other settings you want applied to all of your users.especially if you have to deal with HIPAA, FERPA, or any of the other myriad of government regulations (or jumpy Information Security departments) that are out there.If a user were to leave his office with his workstation unlocked and the door wide open, a malicious person would have access to everything that the unwitting user left open: files, applications, e-mail, etc.The problem for home users and commercial users without a group policy system in place is that this group policy system sometimes hiccups and turns the automatic updating off.Again, for emphasis, the technique and solution outlined in this article is focused on fixing Google Chrome update problems in a Windows environment.
