Saw this on a Windows client on my test network;
User Policy update has completed successfully.
Computer policy could not be updated successfully. The following errors were encountered:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not locate the directory object OU=Top-Level,OU=computers,DC=PeteNetLive,DC=com. Group Policy settings will not be enforced until this event is resolved. View the event details for more information on this error.
To diagnose the failure, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html from the command line to access information about Group Policy results.

Strangely the OU that this computer was in, needed to have the ‘Read‘ right, granting to ‘Authenticated Users’ group, not sure how that got removed! Note: Remember start at the OU that’s directly on the root of the domain, of you have nested OUs.
After that everything was peachy!
