"Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service."

Every time I start my Win8.1 laptop it displays "Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service." error message resulting in Chrome not functioning properly, unable to run Windows Update, etc. Suggestions to resolve?

Odd. I ran sfc /scannow from the Admin Command Prompt and it finished, reporting: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations." I restarted and the problem was gone. :)

Thanks all for your help!
