One discussion with my student make me think again, try to open my mind, and doing some simulation to prove the concept and my knowledge about the impact if a client computer disjoin domain to avoid Group Policy implementation. Then I take conclusion that the dis-joining process will remove all group policy implementation that was retrieved previously from the domain’s Group Policy.
I did some testing on Windows XP and Windows Vista, but only documented the test result on Windows XP.

 

Verify the implementation of Group Policy that was retrieved from Domain.
The execution of vbs file was denied.
