After some extensive research into a problem that cropped up on some systems after a Windows update, we're seeing the following service stop:

Microsoft Policy Platform Local Authority

We believe this is causing authentication failures to certain shares and servers. As a stopgap, we are now running a service that monitors this service, sends a notice when it goes down, and reactivates it. Our problems in the related web applications haven't occurred since. Unfortunately, this monitor is firing off 24-30 times per day. How can we keep this service running consistently?

Server version is Windows Server 2012 R2
