    KB5003173 update crashed audio and messed up group policies


    Windows Update tried to install KB5003173 update and failed. Windows got into automatic repair and restarted again. I did sfc /scannow and update is installed. But it killed audio and messed up group policies. I can rearrange group policies but I couldn't fix audio. I tried trouble shooter and also reinstalling audio driver but it didn't fix it. Also I realized windows didn't create restore point. Do you have any suggestions?

    :)

    GROUP POLICIES IN WINDOWS 10

    You can change Group Policies by opening Group Policy Editor first. You can open it by following these steps:

    • Log in an administrator account. If you are already logged in as an administrator, proceed to step 2.
    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    After opening Group Policy Editor, you can now make the necessary changes that you want.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.

    Couldn't connect to windows group policy service????

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing as with error: Couldn't connect to windows group policy service, we will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know when exactly you received this error code?

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted user profile, User Profile Service or Group Policy Client service stopped working, or Antivirus software conflicts.

    I suggest you to check with the following and check if it helps.

    Group Policy Client service, this service is responsible for applying settings configured by administrators for the computers and users through the Group Policy component. If the service is disabled
    the settings will be applied and applications and components will not be manageable through Group Policy.

    Step 1: Stop the Group Policy Client service.

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Stop.
    • Restart the computer.

    Step 2: Start
    the service and set it to Automatic:

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Properties.
    • Start the service, set
      Startup type to Automatic.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.
