Computer policy could not be updated successfully
You might receive the following error message when trying to apply the group policy settings.
Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were encountered:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not apply the registry-based policy settings for the Group Policy object LocalGPO…
Upon checking the event log I have noticed that Event 1096 is related to the error message above.
After checking the Details tab I could see that the data is corrupted for the registry.pol file located at C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol
In order to solve this problem, we have to delete the registry.pol file located at C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\ folder.
After deletion of registry.pol file try to run group policy update from the command prompt using gpupdate /force command.
