    On start up am getting "special log on" in the event log

    I have relatively new PC with Windows 8.1 but recently I am getting a message on start up that "Windows could not connect to Group Policy service" . This then asks me to look at the Event log.
    I notice that the Event log has " Special log on " every time I log on .
    Are theses messages related ?
    Is this normal ?
    Have I a bug of some description?
    I have ran Norton 360 and malwarebytes - nothing reported.
    Any ideas?

    Are you talking about Event ID 4672?
    This one probably occurs next to your login event because your ID has adminstrator privilege?

    Yes it is ID 4672 for the "special log on"

    The Group Policy Client service" warning is ID 6000

    So I assume these are not related.
