We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


Click Show > Show Details (can already be enabled)

The Details pane is located at the bottom of the window and identifies the path(s) in the Group Policy Object Editor that can configure the selected setting, GPO option or options associated with the selected values, underlying data type, and any other available information.

Click Export > Export Table to Excel or Export All Data to Excel

This is a useful function for importing data for later use and analysis.

      • Export table to Excel exports only data in Table View, while
      • Export all data to Excel exports data as specified in the detail pane, including GPO paths, option names, and data types.

Policy Analyzer is a useful tool for analyzing and comparing group policy objects (GPOs) in Windows. From now on, the tool is useful to know if a set of GPOs contains conflicting parameters. However, there is no indication as to which of them will win and perhaps not, this is something that could happen in later versions.
