Windows 7: Error Message with regard to "DNS Client Events" EventID : 1012

16 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Error Message with regard to "DNS Client Events" EventID : 1012

When I start my computer and desktop comes, there is a notification message, saying "windows could not connect to the group policy client service." So I checked whether group policy client service run using "services.msc", but it shows, it has been stoped and also I can't start the service there.
When I checked the event viewer, in the "Windows logs>>System" There is a error message something like this. "There was an error while attempting to read the local hosts file." Event ID 1012.

What is the reason for this notification message ? How to fix it ?
Please help me. Looking forward your answers.
Thank you.
