    After several months of stable Vista Vista Business edition useage on my Vaio SZ-650 laptop, I now get the following error pop-up from the System Tray after every bootup:

    "The Group Policy Client service failed to start"

    I do not recall any recent system/driver changes. I am on a local Domain network at work. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

    Vista Event Viewer lists the following:
    -The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
    -Details:

    -Provider[ Name] Service Control Manager[ Guid] {555908D1-A6D7-4695-8E1E-26931D2012F4}[ EventSourceName] Service Control Manager

    I should mention the following associated error in Event Viewer:

    Certificate Services Client failed to register Group Policy notifications. Error code: 2147944153.

    However, this error is listed daily for a couple months
