    What are these 2 startup entries?


    I have these 2 errenoues entries that appear when I run Autoruns:

    \Microsoft\Windows\SMB\UninstallSMB1ClientTask File not found: Unrestricted
    \Microsoft\Windows\SMB\UninstallSMB1ServerTask File not found: Unrestricted


    It's a fresh Windows 10 install. I did enable the:

    - SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support
    - Automatic Removal
    - Client

    in Programs and features; because I know those are required for network file sharing

    I wonder if I should delete those entries or leave them alone:

    Only if you have PCs with Win 7 or earlier on the network.

    If you enable it, then
    a. There's a marginal security risk
    b. The computer browser service starts running
    c. There can be a 20 minute+ delay in seeing devices new to the network.

    Hi there

    SMB1 also needed for some older (Non Windows) NAS type systems too !!!

    Never knew that, thanks. What about those 2 entries in the autoruns though? why are they there and can they be deleted?

    Oh nevermind, after I removed those 2 components and rebooted. The statup entries also disappeared.
