    win10 64

    Win10 share works until updates(2 weeks to a month) and permission end

    Searched thru post, lots of near misses but no solution to my issue. Only on windows 10 does this problem exist.
    I connect office equipment to customers pcs/networks. I use a script to create a hidden/special user that has admin permissions plus makes me a share folder. I then share out the folder with read/write permissions for the hidden user. It works great for days or weeks...until what seems to be win10 updates come across and my permission gets removed. The user is still there, the folder is still shared, but my user no longer works. If I create another user the same way, it works again until some time later.
    Now the kicker is, this only happens on about 5% of my customers, other win10 installs have worked and still work. Its only some computers doing this. When I look at share permissions, full access is on. Now I have not tried the "everyone" permission.
    Any suggestions?

    Hi, just a very general suggestion:
    Try temporarily blocking Windows updates on an affected PC
    Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Then when the others change, check that one.

    Continue with a process of elimination.

    Are all PCs of a standard build- including installed programs and settings?
