Group policy error: Failed to open group policy object on this computer.

Q: Group policy error: Failed to open group policy object on this computer.

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.

Preferred Solution: Group policy error: Failed to open group policy object on this computer.

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.)

A: Group policy error: Failed to open group policy object on this computer.

I guess reinstall windows is the solution, I also found one log "event id 1096", related to "registry.pol" it was corrupted.

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...?

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:

Hi,

I was following this tutorial: Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group in order to setup group policy for certain users/groups.

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 there,

I want to disable the lock screen on my Windows 8.
So I used this help from a Microsoft website - technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731745.aspx - on how to "Open the local Group Policy Editor". 

It says to search for gpedit.msc - Which I couldn't find.

In the Add or Remove Snap-ins dialog box, click Group

The problem is: In

Where is it? Why don't I have it? How do I fix it?!

Thanks in advance,

Hi Dima
Are you sure you have Windows 8 Pro installed?
The only reason the Group Policy Editor might be missing is if you have the Windows 8 Core version installed.

Hi,
What kind of Windows 8 are you running? If you are using Windows 8 Starter or Premium edition you will not have access to the group policy editor.
Instead you will need to enable the setting through the Windows Registry.
1. Search regedit to open Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization
3. In the right pane, creating the NoLockScreen REG_DWORD and set value to 1.

Here is one of the system error messages from the event log.

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not apply the registry-based policy settings for the Group Policy object LDAP://CN=Machine,CN={51B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=domain,DC=local. Group Policy settings will
not be resolved until this event is resolved. View the event details for more information on the file name and path that caused the failure.

C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy and C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicyUser folders are empty.

We attempted to dis-join and then join the domain, however group policy processing issue remains unresolved.
What would be the next troubleshooting step for this problem?

Hi All,
A bit of a generic question here as I don't have much to go on, but over the last month or two so we've started seeing more and more users seeing the "Group Policy Service Failed the Logon" error who then can't log onto the PC. We use roaming profiles
too, so once they see that error it seems to then corrupt their roaming profile stopping them from logging on anywhere.
Other users can log onto the PCs without issue.
We've been seeing the problem occasionally since moving to Windows 7 years ago, but there seems to have been a sudden spike.
We're Windows 7 SP1, patched with the latest updates...

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.

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.

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

After about a year on this laptop, and windows 10 (updated regularily) i started seeing pop ups that say " WIndows couldn;t connect to the Group Policy CLient service" That wouldn;t allow me to get into my computer. I have had the Geek Squad repair it over 12 times and it still pops up. Then it locks up some of my word files and says I can;t get into them.I'm super frustrated with what was a great computer. Has anyone else had this problem?

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

In order to get to anything on my computer I must first enter a password. When I enter my password, I get the message "the Group Policy Client Service failed the sign in, access denied. I am unable to do anything until I can sign in. How do I fix this and prevent it from happening again?!

You can try performing a System Restore from Windows Recovery Environment (if you have not done this already). To do this, you can follow the steps below:1. Insert your Windows disc and then, restart the computer.2. Press any key when you receive the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD"3. Set your preferences for Language to install, Time and currency format, and Keyboard or input method. Click "Next".4. Click "Repair your computer" and select the operating system you want to repair. Click "Next".5. Click "System Restore" and click "Next". Click a suitable restore point and click "Next".6. Confirm the disk you wish to restore and click "Next".7. Click "Finish" and then, click "Yes".8. After the process is complete, click "Restart" to restart your computer.9. Once the computer restarts, click "Close" to confirm that the System Restore was successful. Now, see if you are able to sign-in.

Can someone help me please!!

A:The Group Policy failed the logon. Access Denied

Here are instructions on how to fix it, or at least, how I fixed a computer at school once.

1. Logon to the machine with a machine administrator account (assuming this issue is with a domain account, if not logon to the machine using another account with administrative privilege).
2. Move the machine to a workgroup from domain. (If it was part of one workgroup then change it to another one or join a domain.) You could do this through Control Panel\System and Security\System and then Change Settings.
3. Restart the machine and logon with a machine administrator account.
4. Delete your user profile data (or move it a different location) completely from c:\users. "C" in my case is system directory but if you have a different one then use that one.
5. Join the machine back to domain account (or to workgroup that the machine was originally joined to), and restart the machine.
6. Logon with your domain account that you were having trouble with. Keep fingers crossed.
If all goes well, you should be logged on.

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.

A:The Group Policy Client Service Failed the Logon

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.

Jesse, I would try to go to a restore point prior to the error. The fix involves registry changes.

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.
            And when I looked at the event viewer logs It shows some error :

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.
