Hello List,
I have another problem that I'm seeing more and more of.  The symptom is
my users lose their home page, it reverts back to MSN.  I set the home
page in a GPO.  When I look at the eventvwr I get the Userenv 1104 event
that basically says windows can not resolve the WMI filter.  
My filter is: root\CIMv2 Select * from WIN32_OperatingSystem where
caption ="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" AND CSDversion= "Service
Pack 2". 
This filter has been in place for over a year and now it is failing.  It
looks like WMI is not working but I have followed the procedure in KB
278316 to create a new sdb and I have stopped and restarted the WMI
service.  I have also found KB 814613 which states "Group Policy
Processing Stops After you apply a WMI filter to a GPO"; which is not
very comforting to say the least.  Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance for your help.
