    What accounts are listed by the command net user? It should list Guest - or does it use the German spelling?

    How about trying net user Gast /active:yes & net user Gast /active:no for those commands if my schoolboy German serves me well?

    Something has changed with using "Gast" instead of "Guest".

    I dont know what I have done exactly, but it seems that your tips helped.
    I can change it now again to disable.

    But now one question remains.
    What or who is this "WmsControl"-account???

    I dont have this entry on my second Desktop-PC.

    BTW: What I have done.
    I unchecked "Benutzer müssen Benutzername und Kennwort eingeben" (Users have to enter user name and password) & confirmed with "Übernehmen" (Accept).
    After a "Sign Out" & "Log In" I was able to turn off and save the password protection.. finally.. :)
    I re-checked "Benutzer müssen Benutzername und Kennwort eingeben" (Users have to enter user name and password) and password protection setting now works again as it should.

    What a mess..

    Did I mention that I dont like Windows???

    Thx, so far ..

    Maybe that account something to do with Windows Multipoint Server - see Maybe you have this software installed? Best to create a new thread if you want to follow this up.

    After beating my head on my desk to figure out why my machine wouldn't connect to network shares, I found out the reason.

    For some reason, my network location changed to Public. I changed it back to Private and I could connect to my mapped drives and other network shares without the network authentication box popping up. Just FYI if anyone tried the other solutions and they didn't work like I did.

    I'm using Windows 10 so I did the following:

    Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Ethernet > clicked HomeGroup and let it connect to the private homegroup.

    After that, all drives were accessible again!

    I've found checking Homegroup status after updates to be a good quick'n'dirty troubleshooting technique for mysterious Win10 networking problems. For a long while there on the Redstone 1 series of Insider Previews, OS upgrades would change network status from Private to Public and toss me out of my local Homegroup. Good call!

    I had the same problem and I was looking here because I forgot how to take care of this. And then I found it and it's very simple. Just go to your HomeGroup settings - Change advanced sharing settings - Turn off password protected sharing.
