Just helped a friend with an upgrade to Win 10. Now he cannot see any computers on the office network. There is internet access, so I know he is connecting to the network, etc. If I manually enter a network address, I can map a network drive. I can also print from the computer to a network attached printer. 


I have a Win 10 computer on the same network and can see all other computers/devices on the network. This is specific to this computer and started after the upgrade. Help troubleshooting this would be fantastic!

Normally I get a response from Geeks, but not in this case...


I ended up finding something on another forum that worked - figured best to share here as well in case anyone is experiencing this issue:




Apparently the problem come from build 1511 because it use samba 3, so you have to disabled like that :

Command prompt / administrator and type two lines together like that : 

sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi 
sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled

clic on enter

This run for me, I can see all my mapped PC now, windows XP, windows 10 and threshold


In my case, this issue was solved by running the above.
