I have been getting this error message on a couple of my servers, I have checked with Microsoft on their site and have read all of there suggestions and nothing helps. I have made some changes in group policy a while ago and I believe these error messages started happening then. Can someone please tell me the steps of what I need to do to correct this problem.
I have been going crazy trying to find out what might be causing it.

I found out a little more information I checked my winlogon.log file and found this error that has been happening at the same time my event viewer is showing the error message: the error is this.....

Error 1627: Function failed during execution.
       Error configuring machine\software\microsoft\driver signing\policy

Can someone tell me how I can fix that?

Thank you

I fixed this problem myself found out if you go to windows directory, security, logs and look at the winlogon.log test document it and look at the last entry and see what group policy says what the error is mine was showing error 1627 so I found out I had to change the default domain group policy on the domain controller. I went to GP and Expand Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options and double click on Devices: Unsigned driver installation behavior set it to Warn but allow installation and that allowed my error to go away and now I get a 1704 message say group policies have been applied successfully.

Just want to let everyone know this is a good fix.
