It will be tough to do this using "normal" policy without a reboot or some
kind of triggering action. However, if you are in a position to deploy the
Group Policy Preferences product, then you could use that product's ability
to create Scheduled Tasks via GP to push a scheduled task to machines that
does the restart for you.

I would like to know if you can restart a service using group policy.  Now
the computer never gets rebooted and I have no access to the local drive as
well.  How would I be able to accomplish this?  If there is a better way,
please let me know.
