Computer policy could not be updated successfully

After checking the Details tab I could see that the data is corrupted for the registry.pol file located at C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol

Computer policy could not be updated successfully

In order to solve this problem, we have to delete the registry.pol file located at C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\ folder.

After deletion of registry.pol file try to run group policy update from the command prompt using gpupdate /force command.
