    Windows failed to connect to a Group Policy Service

    When I turned on my Windows 10 Desktop PC this morning, it said it failed to connect to a Group Policy Service or something similar to that.

    Can someone help me out with this, please?

    This is my Desktop PC. It's a Acer Aspire XC603G Desktop.

    Thanks in advance!

    Jesse, I would try to go to a restore point prior to the error. The fix involves registry changes.
