My mother's boyfriend has a booting problem on his Gateway, Windows 7 desktop. The exact error that we get when we try to login is as follows: The group policy client service failed at the login. Access is denied. We get this every time we try to login into his computer. His password is correct, but he doesn't have any password reset disks or anything of the sort. I have already restarted, dusted his system out, re-seated his memory sticks, as the sticky thread says. I don't have any access to any blank CD's or flash drives so memtest is out of the option. I appreciate anyone's help they are willing to give. Also, I tried finding this problem already but I couldn't. So if there is something already submitted just give me a link. Thank you!
