        Hmmm.

        If it happened once only then it's bit difficult to find it out.

        1. Curious to know that if it happened to this specific policy settings or none of the changed policy setting got applied to it.

        2. If none of the policy got updated then there is posiblity that at the time of startup windows was unable to call the functions required for updation of GPO.

        3. To elaborate the second poind we can just take help from event viewer that what errors it was throwing during startup related to GPO.

        4. Share if you have any event related to GPO in the eventviwer.

          1) check the event logs and look for GPO related warnings/errors before running gpupdate.

          2) Take a look at "C:\WINDOWS\Debug\UserMode\userenv.log" file and look for GPO related issues.

            Run gpresults for the affected user on the affected computer. This will give you good info to determine what the problem is.
