Event ID 4098 - Group Policy Shortcut error


In this article, I am going to give the solution/fix/cause for error Event 4098. Event ID 4098 is an error event that related to the Group Policy Shortcuts.

Event ID 4098 Source:

I saw the Event ID 4098 with the following error.
The computer 'My Settings' preference item in the 'Default Domain Policy {31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}' Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070002 The system cannot find the file specified.' This error was suppressed.

After I have analyzed for some time found the following things as root cause for the problem.
 1. Open the Group Policy Management Console by running the command GPMC.msc.

 2. Click the Edit option on Default Domain Policy (the above 4098 event source shows this policy as error, In your case, it may be different policy )

3. Go to the Computer Shortcuts node, Computer Configuration ->Preferences -> Windows Settings ->Shortcuts, in right side pane check the target path of the shortcut link that causes for the Event 4098.
In my case, the shortcut link is My Settings
