I first discovered this during Optimising my Windows 10 for VDI and in a certain condition it would appear (mainly if any alteration where made to local users on the Windows 10 PC.

It would appear it affect:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise Edition – 1607 (Anniversary)
  • Windows 10 Enterprise Edition – 1703 (Creators)

Also tested it on Professional with the same issue

Resolution

After a very lengthy time troubleshooting this and identifying it was the services section in my Optimisation script i begin the process of elimination to see which service would causing the issue to occur.

Upon setting Startup Type of “Device Association Service” to Disabled, Creating a Local User and rebooting the issue occurred.

I then started my PC up in Safe mode – Set service back to Manual and the issue was resolved.
