Login Issue in Windows 7

Getting the following error:

Here’s the error msg I get every time I power up:
Failed to connect to a Window service.
Windows couldn’t connect to the Group Policy Client service.
This problem prevents standard users from signing in.
As an administrative user, you can review the system event log for details about why the service didn’t respond.

How can I fix this??

Check the the service is actually running by going to Start-->Run--->Type 'services.msc'

In the list of services on the right, find Group Policy Client and verify that it is started. If it is not, double-click it and click the "Start" button - also verify that it is set to start automatically.

Failing that, you may want to check system files using sfc /scannow at command prompt.

If it just started I would recommend doing a system restore to a point in time before you started getting the error message.  SR generally works up to 90 days in the past depending on how much free disk space you have.
