Failed to connect to a Windows 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 Group Policy Client does not start,
when I start the Laptop after shutting it down remove
the power supply for some minutes, I have followed the
instructions from the net from this video link
"
"
to check if the following keys exists in the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\gpsvc
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SVCHOST\netsvcs
They both exists with the proper keys
Even windows 10 Inbuilt Mail, Google Chrome does not work.
Other Browsers work properly

But if I restart the Laptop then everything starts to work properly

Does anyone know what is the problem.

I have check the registry and I have the different information in the "ImagePath" parameter of the "gpsvc" folder "%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" instead of "%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k gpsvc" and I am not allow to change this value.

I have added other information as suggested but it still does not work.

What should I do from here?

i'm having the same issue and i have changed and added the registry for grpevc entries although
Although I have the same
"%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" instead of "%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k gpsvc"
and also reviewed this video

So I look forward to any replies that may also assist myself - but I will post a new question

I too am having the problem of not being able to login to the Group Policy and it is not showing as running in services.msc. I reviewed all the registry keys required and I see that all are present. There is one thing though that is located in my netsvcs key. I have an additional DWORD which shows as CoInitializeSecurityAllowInteractiveUsers with a value of 1. Could this be the reason that Group Policy will not start; should I delete this key?

should I delete this key?
No....
I have the same key and do not have the problem described in this thread.

Have you tested with a new user?
Just to see if the problem is unique to your user profile?

i have set up a new user - and had the issue on the new user profile
I found the same DWORD entry
CoInitializeSecurityAllowInteractiveUsers
and set the value to 0, switching it off. After restart the Group Policy Client now runs. When I have time I'll try to isolate the initiating program. Suspects are AntiVirus and Chrome which both run in the background for all users. Meanwhile I'm hoping that setting the value to 0 rather than deleting will prevent a future update from causing the same problem.

I hope you guys can discover the cause of this problem. Trouble's suggestion worked for me back in 9/2015, and the problem never reappeared. I quick-kicked back to a previous restore point (that fixed the problem) and a couple of months ago I updated to the latest Windows10 build (still no problem, again). I don't run Chrome now and I use only Microsoft antivirus.
