A Windows 10 user encounters the following message when logging into his computer:

"Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. Please consult your system administrator."

I have performed the following to resolve:

1. Open regedit
2. Navigate to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SVCHOST
3. Create multi-string value named GPSvcGroup and assign it value GPSvc
4. Create a key (a folder) and name it GPSvcGroup
5. Open the newly-created GPSvcGroup folder and create 2 DWORD values:
     First called AuthenticationCapabilities with a value of 0x00003020 (or 12320 in decimal)
     Second is called CoInitializeSecurityParam with a value of 1
6. Reboot


and

performed a full system malware scan, disjoined/rejoined the domain, recreated the user's profile and completed sfc /scannow on the affected computer.

The issue persists. Please advise.

I've had luck with running the following commands on the PC

netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" dhcp
netsh interface ip set dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" source=dhcp
netsh interface ip set address "Ethernet" dhcp
netsh interface ip set dnsservers name="Ethernet" source=dhcp
netsh interface ip delete arpcache
netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ip reset reset.log

ipconfig /flushdns
shutdown -r -t 30
