I have a problem with a recurring window for a Group Policy Client service failure to connect in my HP s5503 desktop computer in Windows 7 Home Premium x64.Regrettably, I cannot provide the actual window contents of the failure.
On checking the services.msc list, the Group Policy Client service entry was not started. However, on checking its properties, the option to start the service was greyed out! Hence, there appeared to be no way to start the service (probably a missing/corrupted file!).
I have tried the approaches to a solution as provided in the results of several Internet search results. Some recommended a system restore approach, based on the likelihood of a Windows Update source of the problem. Regrettably, I did not try to fix the problem when it first occurred (since there did not appear to be any deleterious effects on performance).
Can anyone recommend an approach to the resolution of this vexing problem?
Thanks, in advance, for any assistance/advice.
