We have a machine running Windows 7 Home Premium. When trying to log into any account other than the administrator the following message is given:
Could not connect to Group Policy Client service. Please consult your system administrator
When looking in Services the Group Policy Client is set to automatic but is not running. The start option is greyed out greyed out so I can't simply start it. Have checked dependencies and they are all running.
Have tried starting through command prompt with "net start gpsvs" but get get this error:
System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.
Running from an Administrator account with an administrative command prompt.
Also tried running system file checker but no integrity violations were found.
