    Sharing folders broken after Feature update to Windows 10, ver 1709

    hi guys,

    so I was searching for the past 3 hours for a concrete solution for this... here's the scenario, I have one win10 PC and 2 win 7 PCs over Ethernet, all working decently, until today I noticed that the other win 7 comps cannot see the win 10 comp under the network... after fiddling quite a bit I came across these suggestions:

    Look for the following services in the list:

    DNS Client
    Function Discovery Provider Host
    Function Discovery Resource Publication
    Peer Networking Grouping
    HomeGroup Provider
    HomeGroup Listener
    SSDP Discovery
    UPnP Device Host

    1. I reset each of these settings FROM "Manual" TO "Automatic" one by one.

    Which actually did the trick of making the win10 machine "appear" under network list but then I cannot access the shares. tried to reset services, few other things but what makes it work is if I go under the network card and tick / untick the "File and Printer sharing for Microsoft networks", then it magically works..

    it's not great but it does the job for now.... anyone has any ideas? I can tell this happened after the Fall Update, version 16299 that I did not too long ago...
