    Trying to start the services:
    gpsvc
    <Failed to Read Description. Error Code: 2 >

    Windows Audio service

    - delete whole gpsvc folder
    - download, run and hit yes: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/win-services/7/gpsvc.reg

    - reboot your system

    Two popups appear while following.

    And opening the gpsvc.reg file in the download provided.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I understand that Windows cannot connect to Group Policy Client on startup.
    If I misunderstand your concern, please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Why delete gpsvc folder in registry and import new key? Please use system restore point to roll back to previous points. Also, strongly recommend please export registry as a backup before modify the key.

    For your question and description in link as you provided, we shoud check the key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services, then switch to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SVCHOST then create some relevant key for it.
