Not sure if anyone answered this. I have not seen this issue specifically.
Have you tried looking in the WBEM logs to see if WMI is throwing an error.
They are held in C:\windows\system32\wbem\Logs.

Subject: [gptalk] Windows can not perform filter check


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.
