I recently did a clean install with Windows 7 64 on a machine that is part of a workgroup, but not part of a domain. Now I get this message when I boot up: "Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system." Does anyone have any idea how to prevent the message from popping up?

Yes, I am the only user on this computer and only have one user account which is of course the administrator account.
