?Solved? Re: "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access is denie
I am working on a Win7 Pro system for one of my customers. New install of Win7Pro on simple home network, that was working as normal, last thing my customer did was install Norton 360, rebooted and could not get past the login screen due to the error "Group Policy Client Service Failed the the login, Access Denied.
Tried system restores from startup repair - didn't solve.
Tried safe mode and was able to login and create a new user account. Logged off and was able to login with the new user account. Deleted old account (no data to recover).
I don't know why this happened or why creating a new account solved the problem. Looks like something to do with Norton 360? or a corrupted Policy.
Hope this helps,

from the unaccessable acct. Please help!
