    We are having the same problem with our Vista Home - not a network. Did you get this figured out? we really don't want to lose our files...and from what others have posted creating a new profile doesn't always work anyways.

    Hello Dawna,
    You can Not logon to your admin account. Is that what you are saying ?
    ( I'm a little dense today -- OK! most of the time.)

    that is the problem that we are having. As soon as you try to log on to main user acct. (which is usually admin) it gives this message and immediately goes back to login screen.

    Group Policy Client Service Failed the logon - Access Denied

    Hello,

    I get the following error: Group Policy Client Service Failed the logon
    - Access Denied when I try to log on to my laptop running Vista. I booted on
    safe mode and try to log in, it started to log in but then displays logging
    off. Any ideas? thanks in advance.

    RE: Group Policy Client Service Failed the logon - Access Denied

    I got this message after my desktop totally changed and had
    issues...apparently this is caused by a hacker or virus. Find a system
    restore point where your computer was running fine. And perform system
    restore. Took care of my issue when M-Soft couldn't give me a fix.

    1) **RENAME** the roaming profile on the domain controller, or wherever it is you store the roaming profiles. (dont delete or you will loose all of the data for the user)

    2) have the user log in again.

    3) pull all the important data from inside the old roaming profile that you renamed, My Documents, any outlook pst data, favorites, etc.


    This is not ideal and is in no way a fix for this error; however, if you do not want to spend countless hours trying to fix before giving up anyway, just follow the above steps.

    "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access is denie

    Hi,

    I was noline with Symantec Tech Support and the agent made a change to my
    system without realizing it, and now I cannot login to my account. I get the
    above message. What does it mean and how can I get it resolved?

    I can log in as Admin, except that the system seems to be an order of
    magnitude slower compared to before this online session.

    I also tried to restore the system to several Restore Points prior to all
    this, but they were all unsuccessful.

    Please help!!!

    Thanks

    Found a way around the problem, so the urgency is gone. Still would be nice
    to know what this error means and how to get around it.

    WJB I'm not sure how to answer this one because it is a problem (from my
    research, anyway) that has been around for a while and nothing concrete in
    the way of solving it - well other than the obvious one of re-installing
    windows.

    From what I gather it is a user profile problem and the two main 'possible'
    repair options are to either create a new user profile for that user (in
    this case, you) or, and this may be more relevant because you have backups,
    copy the 'ntuser.dat' file from your backup to your current machine. It
    appears that this has worked for one user, anyway - see

    If the Symantec tech support agent made a change to your system without
    realising it then I would be getting back in touch with Symantec to find out
    what the hell he did wrong.

    I'm not familiar with this problem so all I can really do is point you in
    the direction of some possible resources (the one above) in the hope that
    one of the answers will help you out.

    Sorry I can't be more help on this one

    Thank you very much for trying, John. I'll look into the ntuser.dat file
    possibility and I do have a call in to Symantec. I just hope the tech who
    calls is more knowledgeable than the one who messed it up.

    "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access is denied

    You've done plenty, John, thanks. Can I impose on you again to take a look at
    another Vista issue I first posted in August with the subject: "Black Screen
    When Resuming" in the general Vista group? I'm sure others would have also
    ran into this.

    Thanks again.

    Re: "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access is denie

    Hey guys- I just had this issue happen to me last night. I will take
    you back though a few weeks when we lost all of our desktop stuff. I
    then realized that our computer was not recognizing me as the adm. and
    it would log on as a temp. When logging off, it would lose everything
    from that session. I though I had a virus or something. I had needed
    to renew my anti-virus so I had help from symantec installing and then a
    night or two later I get this same deal with the group policy client
    message. Since I am the only user on the computer, I had not created
    another profile to log onto. So, therefore, I can't get into the system
    to try anything I have been reading on forums. Any suggentions?
    Thanks,
