Hi, does anyone know if it's possible to determine when the last automatic refresh of GPO occurred on a computer? Or when the next one will occur?

I suspected as much. This was a pretty trivial question for your standards

"The Group Policy is automatically updated (refreshed) in the background every 90 minutes, with a random offset of 0 to 30 minutes. You need to wait for 120 minutes to check if the GPP you customized work normally or not.
If you would like to modify the refresh interval and the offset interval for users, please modify and apply the group policy: User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy."

Check the eventlog (Group Policy) if you are on Windows 2008 or higher. It's all there, including the _next_ refresh.

gpresult /z gives an output with the refresh time as well as the GPO's that are applied
Lot of other options on it as well.
