Preferred Solution: group policy service fail error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 7(x86) HP (SP1) desktop.. Avast Free, Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D (scan daily, all report clean).

I'm getting constant Error 1303 Insufficient Priveledges when trying to install.. anything at all, even when Run As Admin. I managed to get a couple programs installes by digging into the ProgramData folder, and trying multiple attempts and changes to Take Ownership, Run As Admin, Properties, Sharing.. etc.. I just dont get it.. I even disabled Avast thinking it might be blocking.. something..

To top it off, when I enabled the hidden Admin User acct to try to install with the Admin acct, I attemp to sign in as Admin.. I get "Group Policy failure, unable to login" then it flips back to my user acct screen.

I am unable to change any setting in the HomeGroup sharing either. Everything is stuck on Share With Nobody.

There are multiple fails going on here, they're all Share settings based.. but I just cant change anything.

New Asus laptop, Windows 8.1. 
 
Past day or so, been getting a new message upon boot-up (bottom right-hand corner, yellow pop-up message box that disappears after twenty seconds or so):
 
"Failed to connect to a Windows service.  Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client Service.  This problem prevents standard users from signing in."  Message then tells me that as Admin I can log into my settings or history (or something) and find out what the problem is. 
 
Otherwise, laptop appears to be working fine.
 
Questions:
 
1.  What does this error message mean?
2. How do I use my Admin privileges to step-by-step resolve the problem?

A:Group Policy Client Service Error

Okay, someone else posted a similar question at answers.microsoft a few years back.  Here was one person's response:
 

 
It looks like during reboot a vital registry settings were lost during crash and Group Policy Client "doesn'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.
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.
Once you complete all steps above, reboot the computer and the problem will be fixed.

Has anyone seen this error before?

"The Group Policy Client service failed the sign-in.
The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported."

I got the error when signing in with my normal non-Admin local account. I'd just updated to the latest set of patches from Microsoft, and apparently all had installed OK. I then logged in using my Admin-level account - again apparantly all OK - and shut down.

Then when I started the laptop again, I logged in with my non-Admin account and after I'd entered the password, it processed for longer than normal, and gave me this error (only option available ="OK") and took me out to the login screen.

However when I tried again it worked.

But I can't help wondering if something is still wrong...?

Hi,

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

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

The system log shows The Group Policy Client service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

That tells me nothing. I can use the computer because I am the administrator, I can access files, programs, etc. from the task bar or the start menu, but my desktop is blank. I have no idea how to troubleshoot this.

What happened was I shut down the computer this morning because I kinda thought there were some windows updates yesterday. Turned it on this afternoon and it booted fine, but I got the error shown above.

It's been suggested in my searching that there are keys missing now from the registry regarding the Group Policy Editor because of the windows update. This link says Vista, but the gentleman who posted the info posted it in February 2013:

For the sake of completeness, I'm going to give the full history here. We have a computer running Windows Vista Home Premium. This is on a home network; no domain. The other morning, following a Windows Update and restart, when the user tried to login she received the message "User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded".

We followed online advice to log in with an administrator account and change setting in the registry for the Profile, resetting some values to 0. We also followed instructions to delete the ntuser.dat file; however, we could not locate a file that was just ntuser.dat; they also had long series of numbers after them, apparently indicating that they are temporary files.

After several tries at fixing this, she now gets a different error when she tries to log on: "group policy client service failed to start".

She can log onto the account in Safe mode, and I can log on to her computer using her account from my computer on the same home network without any problems.

We have tried copying the user directory to a new profile, except for the ntuser.dat files, as suggested on Windows help. This took a good 5-6 hours to copy, and the new profile seems to be severely hosed; none of her setting have been carried over, webshots will not run, Firefox keeps asking if she wants to set it as the default browser even after she tells it yes each time, and she can't access the User Accounts settings from the new ...

A:Solved: Group policy client service failed to start error - please help!

I think we've got this resolved. Unfortunately, there have been so many steps that I'm not sure which were neccessary. These includes:
* The instructions here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...gon-user/4ed66b21-c23e-42f1-98b2-706dcf931fae
(changing some registry entries for the profile)
* Uninstalling Symantec, which had an automatic scan that had been interrupted and was stuck not being able to complete or be cancelled.
* The final bit of fix that worked was (hope I'm getting this all right):
1) Clearing the registry entries as above.
2) Renaming the profile folder.
3) Restarting the computer and letting it create a new profile folder with the same name.
4) Copying the ntuser files from the newly created profile to the old profile.
5) Deleting the new profile and renaming the old profile back.
And now things seem to be working, though she had to run setup on some programs again.

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

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.

A:The Group Policy Client Service failed the sign-in

The fact that you were able to login is good and suggests you might be OK. If the issue persists with future logins there are a number of possible causes; the main one being that the GPCS failed to turn on as it should do at start-up.

One possibility is that it is related to Google Chrome see: http://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...icy-error.html and this would be worth checking through if you use Chrome on your system.

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.

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

Hi marieneregalado,
This issue might be caused by corrupted user profile.
You could boot into Windows Recovery Environment and rename the folder of your user profile under c:\users.
Also kindly follow the steps as mentioned in the link

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.

Hi, this is my first post and so I came here to ask my question...
 
I have been doing some changes to my computer (HDD Upgrades, BIOS Update) and since a few days ago, my computer has been struggling.....
 
When it starts up I get a balloon notification saying it couldn't connect to the group policy thing. Also some programs like Chrome are taking 10 mins to load up.
 
I tried using the scan command in CMD, it said there was corrupt files but couldn't fix them. I have looked in the registry editor and it says that the Policy should start up when the computer starts.
 
I am also the admin and only user of this computer. I had a look at services and Group Policy Service was stopped, the options to start it was greyed out.
 
My computer is functioning but is slow and it probably isn't a good idea to forget about it.
 
Anyone can help please?
 
Thanks, Hamza
 
EDIT:
 
Also forgot to mention, I apparently have some updates that are supposed to install at a restart but doing a restart will just hang it on Restarting, and will just restart the computer like normal.
 
Plus, I can't check for any updates as "the service is not running"

I am using Vista Business SP2. Two days ago when I restarted my laptop I received the following message while trying to login to my account,
 
"The Group Policy Client service failed the logon, Access is denied"
 
Because of this problem I am locked out of my account and cant get in at all.
 
I am not sure when did this problem started because usually I put my laptop to sleep while I am not using it. I faced this problem when I restarted. I only had one user account as admin in windows.
 
I searched for this problem and found that I could try to login via safe mode. I tried and I am able to login to the same account in safe mode. As suggested in search some people said you could try making another account of admin. Maybe it happened because of the profile getting corrupt. Some people said you could modify ntuser.dat file of the affected account. But I could not find that file, although I could see files (two of them) with same name in new account ntuser.datLog1 and ntuser.datLog2.
 
I cant access my old profile through the new one. 
 
I would like to ask that is there any possible way to recover my old account along with its data?

A:Group Policy Client service failed the logon

If you can login via safe mode you should be able to create a new user account and transfer the data from the corrupted profile.
 
Open a command prompt in Safe Mode and type
 
net user administrator /active:yes
 
This will enable the hidden administrator account. Reboot the computer and in the Administrator Account create a new admin user. Transfer the data then disable the Administrator account in an elevated command prompt by typing
 
net user administrator /active:no

I am using Windows Vista Business Service Pack 2 and having this error while I try to login to my account. 
 
"Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access is denied".
 
Earlier on I had only one account (Admin only) but after having this error I was unable to login to my account. I searched on internet and found the one solution to access the affected account in safe mode (to copy the useful data) and make new account.
 
After continously using the new account for some time (without shutting down my laptop) if I log off from newer account and then login to my old account. I dont get the Group Policy .... error and get logged in to my old account. But the problem is if I shutdown I get the same error and have to repeat the cycle by using the new account for some time and then try to login to older one.
 
With the new account I am unable to access data from old account and also some of the data in another drive. Is there any permanent solution to this issue without reinstalling the windows.

A:Group Policy Client service failed the logon

Hi jackhero,
 
Login to old account and use Windows Repair (All In One) utility to reset registry permissions and reset file permissions.

This pc is workgroup-based, and both active accounts on it are getting this message.  There are two other accounts, but nobody knows the passwords for them.  So I am totally unable to log in.

When I boot into Safe Mode, as soon as I log in I get logged out.
Booting into Last Known Good doesn't work either.
Does anybody have any suggestions?  At the very least, I need to get the data off of this computer.

Thank you in advance,
Mike

My computer won't let me sign in. It makes it to the logon screen, type in my password, and it tells me "Group Policy Client Server failed the login", then restarts.

A:group policy client service failed the login

Same problem after installing Norton 360 with a tech. Go to safe mode, create another user, take admin privileges from your old account and add to the new one. I called my GroupPolicyClient. You can then get in, but you can't access things like email. At least I can get to my files, since I write documents for a living.

A work around, but does not fix the problem.

Anyone have a simple answer?
