I cant find anything online what "WP sync client" is, but it is draining battery on my Venue 8 Pro. I have already tried to disable all tiles, and all background tasks. I dont have any phone sync app installed or anything. But still "powercfg sleepstudy" shows "WP sync client" as the main drain source.
Asus UX305F laptop I bought last week. It's working fine apart from a couple of things:
- When the battery is getting low, say from 10% and down, the performance drops dramatically and everything, particularly the internet, runs so slow that it's almost impossible to use until I reconnect the charger. I've changed the on-battery power settings to match the performance settings when it's plugged in and it hasn't made any difference.
- When I'm using the laptop in my bedroom which is adjacent to the living room where the WIFI signal is coming from, the connection is extremely slow, much slower than my mobile phone for example. In the living room I average about 50mbps whereas in the bedroom I'd be lucky to get 20mbps though my phone can get about 40mbps in the same room.
My time is always out of sync, it makes it increasingly difficult to follow conversations on Skype, for instance. I try to manually update the time and it tells me fairly often that there's an error when trying to update. It doesn't matter if my PC is powered off or if I'm using it, the time is bound to get out of sync, so I doubt it has anything to do w/ the CMOS battery. Should I be using a different time server other than time.windows.com? I'm also using Webroot SecureAnywhere Anti-virus. Not sure if that's causing a conflict or not.
I'm on Windows 10 RTM... I'm not connected to a domain, just a regular Windows Home network...
One drive is disabled, No store and no Microsoft account on this desktop. At shut down this event error will be reported "Sync Host 386de service terminated unexpectedly....corrective action in 10000mlsec ..restart the service
Searching the registry results in that there is no 386de sync host service , There are others in the registry but not this recent 386de
In the past I did edit the START to be 4 (suggested in this forum general discussion on similar sync host errors) . The setting was returned to 2 when no change was observed.
This error tends to appear when external drives remain plugged in. Since the Nov. upgrade if externals are left in a usb3 port the system restarts. I now unplug but last night after recent Jan updates I tested by leaving in 1 Usb3 external.
Have set up a VPN server connection on my Windows 10 Pro desktop. Clients can connect to the VPN server but can't access the internet through the VPN connection.
I have the identical set up on a Windows 7 VPN server and client can connect through to the internet using that machine.
Everything seems identical in the set up, however the RAS Interface on the Win 10 shows "no internet access," where the Win 7 server does. This seems to be the issue, but can't figure out how to change the settings on the Windows 10 server to make this work...
I was recently reading this article on ShieldsUp [URL] .... about disabling the client for Microsoft networks.Are there any real security benefits for doing this and if so what would happen if I did? e.g. would I still be able to receive updates from Windows? I've already unchecked file and printer sharing and not bothered about any file sharing.
On 9/12/2015 I was able to log into my non-administrator (user) account. Today, 9/14/2015, I get the message: "Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service..." How can I fix this so I can log into my user account?
Also searched this forum and have replied to similar posts - But here is a thread of my own.
I Setup a new PC for a friend on Saturday 28/11/15 Brand new desktop with Windows 10 Setup using a local Admin Account
2 days later - message appears on starting up (after the login prompt)
"Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system."The the PC is slow to respond , would not open WLM or Chrome And takes 10mins to shutdown
Choose to hold the Shift Key and restart - Then Continue Which fixes the issue - for a few reboots !!!!
Windows 10 has also updated to 1511 Threshold 2 Still occurs
I have tried - and with MS Chat assistance - and all have failed
1) New profile 2) SFC /Scannow 3) Clean Boot
I then read about and was also advised by MS of a registry change for grpsvc.I notice the issue is that Group Policy Client - does not have a status of "running".I checked a couple of windows 10 PCs and they all have the Status "running" although none had the registry entries recommended and all have worked fine for months.However, MS - updated and changed the registry and now we have the status of "running" next day it gave the message and problems returned This time I notice that the GPC status is blank again.Despite the registry changes - still having the issue - every day for 10days now with a reboot using the shift key fixes the issue and GPC is running again
I'm at a loss what to do next MS have said its not a windows problem and refused to further assist - and advised to go back to the OEM HP have said its a windows issue windows couldn't connect to group policy - Windows 10 Forums Which I may try and see if there is a space - but I have checked the registry now and it is now setup as the various GPC articles of course , if i do a clean factory reset - that will be removed
Currently I have installed Windows 10 Home on my PC. The issue is that the File uploading software Filezilla FTP Client is not uploading files in this Operating System. The Previous Version ( Window 7 ) has no issue with FTP. Now my question is that how can Filezilla will upload files in Windows 10...
I tried in MS mail and outlook to click on links and none of them go to any browser that I use, (Edge, FireFox or Chrome. The links are there the way they should show but no action when I click on them.

They both exists with the proper keys.Even windows 10 Inbuilt Mail, Google Chrome does not work.Other Browsers work properly.But if I restart the Laptop then everything starts to work properly.
After upgrading from W8 to W10 and then doing clean install of W10 my Ethernet connection is randomly popping alerts and losing connection (event viewer reports this as event 1014), card also is randomly being reset.
troubleshooting just resets Ethernet card (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller) saying there was an issue with DNS.
I've never used Cisco VPN
Issue did not occurred on W8.1
Tried both drivers (Windows 10 update and Realtek for win8.1 using both compatibility and normal install)
Installed Win 10 on network client. I have 8 mapped drives from the server and on a regular basis 1 or more of drive are lost. They come back on their own usually a short time later. This causes major headaches when programs using files on the drives lose the connection while files are in use.
Not sure whether this is related to the recent upgrade (yesterday jan 28 2016), but I restarted my PC after after the upgrade, all was OK, I switched it off and went home. Today after I swithed my PC on the following appeared: "The Group Policy Client Service failed the sign-in. The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported" Wow, this frightened me as hell. The logon screen reappeared and I managed to log-in on the second attempt.
I'm having the "Failed to connect to a Windows service. Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from signing in" message in my laptop. It was updated from Windows 8 to 10 when we purchased it. At the beginning the laptop works well but now i'm having this message. I saw the a video and the GPC status is not running and in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CURRENT CONTROL/SERVICES/GPSVC in the Image Path is netsvcs instead gpsvdGroup.
The problem is that when i went to SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION/SVCHOST And then to the netsvcs I did'n t have to add it because it is already there, it was not missing. I verified Dword values and all of them have the same values as recommended in the video.
I have a Lenovo Thinkcentre preloaded with Windows 10 Pro. Sometimes when I go to File Explorer and click on Network it shows something called "Ralink Linux Client" connected to my home network. When I select its properties the only information I get is it's MAC address. But the funny thing is when I check my router's list of connected devices the Ralink Linux Client doesn't show up on my router's list even though it shows up on Network on my computer. I am using a Buffalo WHR-300HP router. I also have a Thinkpad notebook computer running Windows 7 Pro on my home network and this phantom device never shows up on Network on the Thinkpad. This Ralink Linux Client comes and goes on my Thinkcentre showing up sometimes but not all the time.
I tried researching this on the Web and apparently others have had this problem too both with Windows 7 and Windows 8. But I am reading conflicting information about what might be going on. One forum poster suggested that this means that the router connected to the network is picking up another router within range. Someone else suggested that this is actually something to do with the local router's internal components.
edit - My Thinkcentre is connected to my router via Ethernet. My Thinkpad is connected wirelessly.
