I am having an issue where when I log on to my laptop briefly I get notification that reads The Group Policy Client service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

When I go to Event Viewer I can see bunch of errors.

Log Name: System Source: Service Control Manager Date: 20/09/2015 23:15:48 Event ID: 7000 Task Category: None Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: xxx Description: The Group Policy Client service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

I also noticed that my updates haven't been runing for a around six weeks.

Has anyone experienced something simmilar and how did you fix it?

  • You could try doing an 'sfc /scannow' to see if that helps clean up some underlying OS issues. – Nixphoe Sep 23 '15 at 17:08
  • @Nixphoe Hi, this did it, ran from cmd as admin, then restarted machine no new entries on Group policy in event log could you please post it as answer. Thanks. – Matas Vaitkevicius Sep 23 '15 at 17:28

You could try doing an sfc /scannow to see if that helps clean up some underlying OS issues.

  1. Go to find and type cmd then click right mouse button and choose run as administrator

  1. Then type into window that opened sfc /scannow

It should then run for a while.
