System:  Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, SP1
ASUS laptop K52F

This evening I installed the following Windows updates:
  KB3080079
  KB915597

Then when I logged in to an Administrator account, the login was very slow and I saw the message "Wait for group policy client". So I rebooted and again logged into an Administrator account. The message still appeared and the login was very slow. I do not remember ever seeing this message prior to the above updates.

So I tried two experiments:
(Experiment 1) Disconnected from the Internet, rebooted, & logged in to an Administrator account. The message no longer appeared. I tried this 2 times - no message.

(Experiment 2) Connected to the Internet, rebooted, & logged in to an Administrator account. The message no longer appeared. I tried this 2 times - no message.

HUH? Why did the message disappear? Why did it even appear in the first place?

Please tell me:
(1) Explain the above if you can
(2) Purpose of the "group policy client"
(3) If the only computer I have is this laptop, is the group policy client service needed? Can this service be shut off?

Thank you.

Louis,

 

I notice in the above list that TAP-Windows in on my laptop. From the control panel, I see that it was installed on Sept 10, 2015. I have no idea what this is nor how it got installed. Should this be deleted?

I think it's to do with a VPN client, did you install a VPN client?

I installed SpotfluxVPN a long time ago but also uninstalled it some time ago. Perhaps TAP-Windows did not get uninstalled when the VPN was removed?  Is it safe for me to remove TAP-Windows?

Louis,

 

Just want to add that when this problem occurred, I scanned my laptop with the following, none of which found any problems:

Avira, Malwarebytes, TDSSKiller, SUPERAntiSpyware, RogueKiller

 

I also ran Chkdsk which found no problems.

You can read all you desire about group policy By Reviewing These LInks .

 

FWIW:  Group policy is NOT a normal part of a Win 7 Home install...it must be installed by a user.

Louis -

 

Thank you. Did you find anything in the Speccy or MiniTooloBox listing that concerns you?

 

The Group Policy Client is running on the laptop and from what I read (if I understand it correctly), this service should be left running and  set to Automatic. Do I understand this correctly? If not, can I stop the service and set it to manual or disabled?

 

You mentioned that "Group policy is NOT a normal part of a Win 7 Home install...it must be installed by a user".  I do not recall explicitly installing Group Policy. So does this mean that the Group Policy Client is NOT a normal part of Win 7 Home Premium.

 

Thank yoiu.

It means...exactly what I stated...and what is stated in the various links provided.
