If not, you might come to the right place. I will describe the fixes one by one. You can apply them with some easy steps.  

Fix the Please Wait for GPSVC Error

Before jumping to the fixes, I want to clarify the GPSVC first.

GPSVC stands for Group Policy Service. It is an account management utility performing in the windows background process.

GPSVC creates policies like the terms of use and interactions of user accounts in a group like administrators group, standard group, limited group, guest group, etc. It maintains the activity of these groups according to the policy.

Let’s explore the fixes-

Fix 1: Press ctrl+alt+delete

If you are stuck on the prompting message, the first thing you have to do is to press the ctrl, alt, and delete keys altogether. As a result, you will find the shutdown option at the right bottom of the screen. Click on it.

Most of the time, the problem might solve. By any chance, the keys might not work, then you have to follow the next step.

Fix 2: Tap the Power Button

If your PC is still stuck on the screen and not a single keyboard button works, you need to hold the power button for a while to turn off or restart the PC.

Once you do it, hopefully, the message will not appear anymore.

Fix 3: Restore Your System

If the message still prompts on the screen and you can not do anything, you might have restored your computer system. You can do it by following the steps one by one.

Step 1

Hold the shift key for a couple of seconds. Consequently, the ‘Choose an option’ section will appear. Then you have to select the ‘Troubleshoot’ option here.
