Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I connected a new HP laptop to my daughter's school so she could get access to Micorosoft Office. It seemed to download some group policy changes. Later on I decided that I did not want the school to have some level of device access to the laptop so I disconnected. But, if I do a gpresult /r after a reboot I can see that something is still applying group policy changes. I don't know whether this is the school or HP or is just this machine itself. On another Windows 10 machine I have I can just see changes from the machine itself (domain type is <Local Computer>) but from this new HP laptop it looks like it is coming from somewhere else (domain type is WindowsNT 4 ). This laptop is Windows 10 Home by the way.
Is this normal for a HP laptop (i.e. is it actually HP themselves) or is my laptop still somehow linked to the school?

understand you are getting error Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client Service.
Don't worry I'll try to help you out.
Did you make any software or hardware changes on your PC?
Please try the few steps recommended below.
Right-click the start button and choose the system
From the left column choose System Protection.
Click the System Restore button
Click the Next button
You may need to check the box at the bottom that says, "Show more restore points"
Pick a date/point in time before the problem occurred and see if that helps.
You may want to run the native System File Checker just to see if you got anything going on with some problematic system files.
Admin Command Prompt and type
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
