I am getting ready to attempt your fix on a friend's computer and ran through your outstanding instructions on my PC. Mine is running Win 10 and I don't have the login problem. I just wanted to see if you think I should make the steps 4 & 5 on hers. By the way, she as on Admin account and just gets a blank screen after the pop up comes up so hopefully I can use the good ole f8 key to get in.
Additional Details Win 10 HP

You will need to enable F8 on Windows 10. Try Solution 2 first.

As it turned out, she still had Win8.1 and did not have the GPSvcGroup key so I created it and the values. Her problem did not happen all of the time, but often enough to be a pain.

After I rebooted the system came up much faster than it had been doing. I assume this is because the system was not waiting for a Service to come up so I think your solution solved the problem. Only time will tell. Thanks!!!
