SYMPTOMS

Resultant Set of Policies (RSoP) in Microsoft Windows XP displays "IEAK" as the name of the source Group Policy object (GPO) for all Internet Explorer settings, instead of displaying the display name of the GPO in which the setting is defined.

CAUSE

A static string is being used instead of reading the GPO display name.
