Hi, this is my first post and so I came here to ask my question...


I have been doing some changes to my computer (HDD Upgrades, BIOS Update) and since a few days ago, my computer has been struggling.....


When it starts up I get a balloon notification saying it couldn't connect to the group policy thing. Also some programs like Chrome are taking 10 mins to load up.


I tried using the scan command in CMD, it said there was corrupt files but couldn't fix them. I have looked in the registry editor and it says that the Policy should start up when the computer starts.


I am also the admin and only user of this computer. I had a look at services and Group Policy Service was stopped, the options to start it was greyed out.


My computer is functioning but is slow and it probably isn't a good idea to forget about it.


Anyone can help please?


Thanks, Hamza




Also forgot to mention, I apparently have some updates that are supposed to install at a restart but doing a restart will just hang it on Restarting, and will just restart the computer like normal.


Plus, I can't check for any updates as "the service is not running"
