    Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client service

    We've started the process of moving to Windows 7 - We have a test lab built with 25 machines all with a base Windows 7 Build.

    At logon we get (at random, not all machines - and after a couple of reboots non administrative logons may work for a while):

    Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client service

    This prevents a non-administrative user from logging on.

    The event logs aren't a lot of help - and googling the problem shows people have had this issue in Vista - but I haven't found a solution yet..

    Anyone else seen this - or more importantly - solved it?

    Thanks

    John

    OK - after some investigation - this is what was found - a warning event in the system event logs ref. Internet Explorer Branding and GPOs..
    The IE customisation stuff in GP is now turned off - I have logged on to a bunch of machines that were complaining earlier (as the original post) - and logons were all successful..
