  • Question

  • Good day,

    We having an issue with Windows 10 Pro 1709 laptop which the laptop restart and afterwards the NetLogon Workstation services are disable. You can try do system restore with no luck this is the second time the same issue are recurring over a 3 months.

    I want to get to the button of this issue. Rebuilding the laptop every time for me is not the correct solution.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi, 

    This could be related to disable SMBv1 and the error appears "The Workstation service depends on the SMB 1.x MiniRedirector service which failed to start because of an error: The service cannot be started. either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it."

    Since SMBv1 is not safe enough, Microsoft recommend to disable it, and at the same time, then the dependency on MRxSMB10 needs to be removed from the entry for LanmanWorkstation so that it can start normally without requiring MRxSMB10 to first start.

    Please do these registry key settings on your PC: 


    Set Registry entry: Start REG_DWORD: = Disabled


    Set Registry entry: DependOnService REG_MULTI_SZ: “Bowser","MRxSmb20","NSI"
