Group Policy Client Policy

Q: Group Policy Client Policy

I'm running Windows 7 Home Edition. I ave a HP Pavillion g 7 1222 nr Notebook PC. The other night my dog knocked the power cord out of the wall when I got up and turned on my computer l got the following error

Failed to connect to a Windows service. Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client Service. The problem prevents standard users from logging into the system. As an administrative user you can review the system event log for details about why the system didn't respond.

Had a X on the Speaker and Internet icon in my system tray. Can play movies no sound. As to Internet it said no Internet available which is not true.Then went I try to get into my computer, control panel,and most any other programs I get another error {Z6EE0668A00A-4407-9371-BEB064C98683\0\{05D7B0F4-2121-4EFF-BF68-ED3F69B894D9}The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect check the user name and password.

When I try an open some of my files or programs I get a popup window that wants to know if I want the program to make changes to my hard drive I can't get one to come up at the moment to give more detail. Probably because I have click on most of them at first I clicked yes then I decided that was probably not a good idea. Either way programs still didn't open.

I also had been getting a blank screen popping up every once in a while before all this other happened and on the top it said C:\Program Files (x86)Driver Pack Notifier\bin\Tools\run.hta but I just x'ed it out it just did it maybe 3 times a day and wasn't bothering anything so I ignored it.

Now that first major issue occurred I can't do anything on the computer except word, video player works but like I said No Sound. No Intent. I went dos did MSCONFIG as someone else suggested now can't get back in to MSCONFIG. But it didn't do anything but it did get me out of save mode finally as I was stuck every time I rebooted it would take me back to Safe mode.

Manage to get into Windows task manager went to C and looks like no files in my E drive which is my HP TOOLS. No files will open in control panel.
I don't have any back up disks or anything as all was destroyed in my home due to a fire. I know a little about computers bit not much. I don't know what to do please can someone really help me. I just finally go a new job working on online for a local company from home have to have my own computer. Please. Thank You.

Hi all,
I received this message when i tried to look at the local group policy setting on one of my machines (Windows XP SP3), which is joined in my domain.
"Failed to open group policy object on this computer. You may not have appropriate rights.
Details:
Unspecified error."
note that I am local admin.
It's all started when I was troublshooting WSUS connectivity and i looked at the WinsdowsUpdate.log, the WSUS server was <Null> & WSUS status server <Null>, I tried to force the domain GP by using GPupdate /force, it went fine and asked to
log off, but nothing changed in the WindowsUpdate.log still <Null>. Then i tried to look at the local policy setting.
I searched the internet nothing related to my case.
Thanks in advance for advising.

Just today I got  an error about the 'Group Policy Client', normally lazy me would put off solving this, but ive also noticed my PC being slow today, and Google Chrome wont work, so after googling solutions i found one, this is what I found:
There are two places to look in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services this path should contain gpsvc key (a folder), which is responsible for service parameters and configuration.  I found that the key was intact, so, you do not touch anything here - just check that the key exists.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SVCHOST This is the most important path you should look into, as it must contain the keys and values referred in the key #1.  Below are descriptions what must be present there.
There must be Multi-String value called GPSvcGroup. My laptop was missing it.  So, you should create multi-string value named GPSvcGroup and assign it value GPSvc.
Next, you must create a key (a folder) and name it GPSvcGroup - this key normally should be there, but, again, it was missin on my laptop.
Then open newly-created GPSvcGroup folder and create 2 DWORD values:
First called AuthenticationCapabilities and you must give it a value of 0x00003020 (or 12320 in decimal)
Second is called CoInitializeSecurityParam and it must have value of 1.
I found this answer pretty much everywhere, and followed the instructions to the letter, but it doesnt work for me. Help!?

I'm curious about the cause of this error in win 8.  My elderly mother (mid 70's) just purchased a brand new win 8 laptop which my brother (an engineer w/systems knowledge) setup for her.  She went to log in today and got that "failed to connect to group policy client service" etc.  Given this is maybe the 3rd time her laptop has been turned on how could she have corrupt win 8 system files already?  Could this be a bad win 8 installation that I should have her go back to store for assistance?  I've been looking for info on this and find a lot of issues w/same error going back many years but so far not much on solutions.  Thanks

A:Problem with Group Policy Client

I FOUND SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM!
The crash of your computer during Windows Updates has caused that !
I had this issue on my laptop since November, and it really bugged me. I sifted through the event log and found the pattern of events that preceded the issue, and, probably, caused it.

In short, the pattern is as follows: Windows updates run automatically as scheduled, and when reboot is initiated after the updates are finished, the computer crashes (probably during reboot sequence). When it boots up, it reports that the last shutdown was unexpected, and the issue begins to occur.

I spent 2 days trying to dig out a solution from the Internet, to no avail, until I came across this page. It doesn't say anything about this particular problem, but it gives more information about SVCHOST process that starts many services, including Group Policy Client. It looks like during reboot a vital registry settings were lost during crash and Group Policy Client "don't know" how to start. Let me explain:

There are two places to look in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services this path should contain gpsvc key (a folder), which is responsible for service parameters and configuration. I found that the key was intact, so, you do not touch anything here - just check that the key exists.

Hello All,

I have been receiving the following error when a normal user logs into a win7 pro 32bit computer, authenticating to a Windows Server 2003 R2 domain:

"Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client Service. Please consult your system administrator."

It follows by logging them off.

So when I log on as an administrator everything is fine except i get a bubble message stating Windows couldn't connect to the group policy service.(please see attached file, top picture)

So my first idea was to disjoin it from the domain then rejoin it, but when i go into computer properties I get a message saying The RPC Server is unavailable.(see middle picture in attached file) It still allows me to get to the change domain menu but our domain (ISD) doesn't show up, it just says *Unknown* as the domain. (see bottom picture of attached file) It doesn't allow me to change the domain.

The RPC Service in services.msc is started and it doesn't have an error message. What is peculiar is the service called Server is missing. Don't know how to get that back.

Any help would be much appreciated, this is happening on several machines in our domain and I have been bashing my head trying to figure this out.

Thank you for your time,
Rob

A:Cannot Connect To Group Policy Client Service.

things usually to check when troubleshooting any problems occuring within an AD authentication/logon are DNS DNS and once more DNS. Did I mention DNS ? you could check that...

Also you may find that it is simply a timing issue. Synchronisation differences between domain controllers themselves and also between clients and DCs can cause all manner of oddities.

Although your indication that alls well when you logon using an admin account could indicate that it is a GPO specific issue.

what I would suggest is logon to the machine using a local admin accout and checking out the event logs for both security and system for the times around a specific user logon. google is your friend here, just google the event id with the provider. or click the link that MS have provided in the newer versions of windows.

this missing server service may be simply related to a GPO security setting or could be something more sinister, is the machine protected with Anti Virus and Malware ? is it upto date ?

hope at least some of this helps...

let us know how you get on.

cheers

Ant.

Hate to open this topic again but I also have group policy client not starting sometimes.  I may go for weeks of daily start-ups without an error then a few weeks with errors.  I restart until I get a boot with no error.  I believe i only have one administrator account, no guest accounts.  The only problem I really see when the GPC doesn't run is Chrome will not start.  There may be more but I haven't noticed.  One time when client didn't start i looked in service and indeed it was stopped and i could not start it.  There have been times when I did not get an error and it was also stopped and could not be started.  I have seen posts about GPC not being important unless you are in an Active Directory.  I am just curious why it sometimes starts and sometimes doesn't.  I have fairly limited computer knowledge so forgive my rambling.

I have 2 new Windows 8 Pro desktop computers that have been in use for a couple of months and are having the same problem. The Group Policy Client service won't start.
When I try to start it I get a message that says "Error 5: Access is denied".
If I try to simply open the service properties, I get the message "Configuration Manager: The Plug and Play service or another required service is not available". When I click OK to that, the properties box then opens. And yes the PnP service is
running and is set to Automatic.
The service is set to Automatic, logon is with the Local System account as usual, and all other automatic services are started.
I'm wondering if there is a permission on a registry key that isn't set right, but I don't know which key it would be nor what the permission should be.
Anyone seen this before with any version of Windows or how to fix it?

Hi all
For the past 6 months we have received reports of PC's taking up to an hour to get to the login prompt.
All our PC's are running Windows 7 32/64 Bit.
The message is always "Applying Group Policy Local Users and Groups policy"
Once it gets to the login prompt they will login with no problem.
I have enabled GPO logging on 1 PC and the results show as below (sorry for the wall of text) Boot time was 15:16.
I was hoping someone else had come across this issue and maybe has some insight
Network team say "its not the network"!!
Server Team say "Its not DNS or Group Policy" !! 
So its been left with me on the desktop team to diagnose the fault

Hi Team,
Please let me know what is the standard Setting for below Security Setting ( Audit Policy ), which are followed in most of the Company.

For Eg:- Should i set ' Success & Failure ' for ' Audit account logon events ' & for ' Audit account management' etc...

I have an SCCM Client deployed to several test PC. The client configures LGPO directing the PC to receive Windows Update from our SCCM server.  However, it fails. WUAHANDLER.LOG shows the following errors:
Enabling WUA Managed server policy to use server:http://xxxxx.xxx.net:8530
Waiting for 2 mins for Group Policy to notify of WUA polucy chnage...
Unable to read existing WUA resultant policy. Error = 0x80070002.
Group Policy settings were overwritten by a higher authority (domain controller) to: Server and Policy NOT CONFIGURED
Failed to Add Update Source for WUAgent of type (2) and id{{.......}}. Error=0x80040692.
I checked domain GPOs and there is no GPO that would cause this conflict.  I ran RSOP to verify.  What I noticed is that gpresult did not show LGPO as being applied. But when I unlinked all the domain GPOs (linked to the PC OU), gpresult showed
LGPO as being applied.
Any ideas or suggestions welcome.

Is your computer a standalone machine, or is it joined to a domain? Try to rename your affected user profile folder in c:\users, and then log in with the affected account. I hope this will work.

I setup a HP Desktop 550-111a last weekend 28/11/15 with windows 10
Setup restore point, and installed various programs WLM and Openoffice

The PC was on the OLD build

On the Monday , had a call - the PC reported a "Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system." message
I remotely looked at a couple of things and decided a restore maybe in order or repair
So Advised to Hold the Shift Key and Restart

As the PC shut down - it mentioned Updating
and so when the trouble shooting screen eventuality appeared - I decided just to continue to windows
And the PC worked fine
and has been used every day - upto yesterday , when he got the same error message and symptoms

So i decided to do the same restart Shift Key & Restart
Then Continue
The PC restarted fine, no error message - so the Shift Key + restart , fixes something/
I decided to look into the issue a bit further
As updating had been mentioned last week, i thought I would start there
Indeed Windows update had failed
and I noticed that the Windows defender had two entries for the 30th and also for yesterday.
The Update also had a button for a retry

Which I did - and then the 10586 upgrade started to install

I have allowed this to run and install - so all the issues maybe solved
I had to enable restore - as this appears to be off by default !!!!!!
and also re-associate OpenOffice with MSfiles, as they went back to Office... Read more

I stupidly deleted C:\Users\MyName\ntuser.dat. Now when I try to log on to my account, I get the message "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon." I am now logged on to my Administrator account to post this message. All of my files that I use daily are in the MyName account. I deperately need to be able to access the MyName account. How can I restore the ntuser.dat file?

After posting this, I checked C:\Users\MyName\ntuser.dat and saw that it is now listed after I rebooted the computer, but I still cannot login to my account.

A:The Group Policy Client service failed the logon

Hi,

I know this is not the answer you want to hear, but what I would recommend doing is creating a new account and copying all your data across. The ntuser.dat file holds the entire "Hkey_Current_User" hive for that user. Your documents will not be damaged, but recovery of that file will be difficult. If you have any problems with restoring your data, such as Outlook files, then just reply back.

If you do want to attempt recovery, see if you can undelete the file using Recuva then copy it back: Recuva - Download If you have any Shadow hard disk copies or backups of this file, then import them now. Else try System Restore, it may just do the trick. If you have to resort to Recuva, then your chances of succes are almost nil.

i am posting this as a new topic since I have already tried almost all the suggestions on this as well as other forums.
My problem is whenever I restart my computer and the the login screen appears after entering log in details(I have 2 admin accounts and 1 guest account) first it shows a box which says Skydrive options-service is currently unavailable and on clicking  cancel button lets me log in but with a blank start screen  not showing any of the apps installed but when I sign out and sign in to the other account then I am able to login while clicking on guest account shows error Group policy client service failed the sign in.So I have to go through a long procedure to login after restarting my computer.

A:Group policy client service failed the sign in

What happens if you boot into the other two accounts?
 
There is a default admin account which normally isn't visible, but if it does become visible you would see the desktop without the programs normally seen.
 
There is a quick way to see if this is the default admin account, in the elevated command prompt type net user administrator /active:no and press Enter.
 
If this doesn't resolve the issue type in the command net user administrator /active:yes, then press Enter.

We are preparing the domain to migrate to Office 365.
As part of it, we followed these steps: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/How-to-prepare-a-non-routable-domain-such-as-local-domain-for-directory-synchronization-e7968303-c234-46c4-b8b0-b5c93c6d57a7?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1
so we prepared our non-routable domain for it.
After that, some of my collegues started reporting that they joined new computer Windows 7 to the domain but whenever the users try to log in, this error message appear:  Windows cannot connect to the group policy client service
Until now, they have tried this in 3 new computers and it is happening in all of them.
The only option they have to access the computer is with the Administrator account.
They think it might be related to the change I made following the article from Office 365, but I am not that sure.
Is it possible that the issue is related to the change made?
If so, How can I solved it? If not, which would it be the solution? Why is happening just in new computers?

Thank you in advance for your help

Starting a couple of days ago, my computer has been acting up. Google Chrome takes a very long time to start after I click to open it (10-15 minutes for it to appear). Certain websites lock up at various times in Chrome and I have to close the tab and try again, only for it to lock up again. Other websites seem okay. Internet Explorer seems to be working properly.

In addition Microsoft Office is not working anymore either. When I open Outlook for example it will come up and say Unlicensed Product at the top (I do in fact have a license), and then it will lock up. Going into Word or Excel won?t even get that far and just gives an error message saying "we're sorry, but Word has run into an error that is preventing it from working correctly. Word will need to be closed as a result. Would you like us to repair now?" and then exits. Clicking repair doesn?t solve anything.

Additionally, each time upon booting the machine there is a message in the lower right corner of the screen saying:

?Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from signing in. As an administrative user, you can review the system event log for details about why the service didn?t respond?

I?ve reviewed the event log, and I see entries where it didn?t connect to the service, and says that it didn?t respond.

I researched this error message and came across this video for a possible solution to the Group Policy, however ... Read more

"Windows could not connect to Group Policy Client services"

Please help.

Thanks

A:Windows could not connect to Group Policy Client services

Please help us by giving us the exact Make/Model of your laptop. And which browser do you receive this message on? eg: IE10, Chrome, Firefox, Safari for Windows, PaleMoon, etc.??

Have you tried your Hotmail account recently on another computer? When exactly was the last time you accessed that Hotmail account; eg: Day/Date/Year? Most Hotmail accounts were phased out last year, and were all replaced by Outlook.com accounts by Microsoft.
