I just signed in as the admin on my Win 8.1 computer. It said something like 'sign in failed. Unique identifier something or other is not supported'. Then a 'signing out' screen for about 2 minutes. It brought me back to a screen to sign in with my personal account or as admin. I tried the personal account and "Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service". What is this all about?

 Are you using an Outlook (previously called Hotmail) ID?  If so, try again later - sometimes the server goes out of service at random intervals.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Open run(win+r) type command...netplqiz   check to see if everything is ok there...you can bypass the sign in if you uncheck the box next to users must enter password. 

don't know for sure if this is what you need but could try it.
