So today, I turned on my laptop only to find out I get an error (bubble) on the bottom right saying "Failed to connect to a windows service" and underneath that said "group policy client service failed the logon"
My desktop gets totally messed up. Sound doesn't work and most of my programs do not boot up. I found two temporary solutions: one is to go on safe mode, open command prompt and type netsh winsock reset , but that stopped working after I reset a few more times. Another possible fix was to press F8 and then start with "last best configuration settings" but that only works sometimes.
Now I want to know what the problem for this is and fix it once and for all.
EDIT: I am now sure I have a virus/malware of some sort. Could this be the reason why my computer won't start up properly at times? "Data Protection" just installed without my permission.
