Need to run GFI Lan Attendant service run under an domain account having local admin privilege in the client machine via group policy so as to enable GFI LAN guard to scan and update the patches.

The normal way is to run the service via Task Scheduler. Set it to run when Windows start, and in the task configuration options, use local administrator privileges. This will allow it to start. Look at the tasks in Scheduler and use one for an example. Several tasks start on my computer with admin authority.

A service can always run with administrative authority.. just assign the account that it runs under as 'SYSTEM'

You can do what you need with Task Scheduler as suggested above.
