{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9} is the GUID of a particular GPO on your Domain Controller(s). You need to find this GPO and temporarily disable it. This will help you narrow down whether you simply have an issue with that GPO or further issues.

You may be able to find out what GPO it represents using this Powershell command:

Get-GPO -GUID “{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}”

If not, you'll have to manually go through each Policy and follow these steps:

Using the "Active Directory Users and Computers" or "Active Directory Sites and Services" administrative tool, click Properties on the context menu of a domain, site, or organizational unit object in the Active Directory. Click the Group Policy tab, click the GPO, and then click Properties. The Unique Name field contains the GUID of the selected GPO. Also note the Domain field. This is where the GPI is stored, even though it may be used (linked to) by other domains.
