From MS website, I got this:
Note This issue may also occur if "Everyone" has been removed from the root drive NTFS file system permissions on the root folder only.
To resolve this issue, turn on the DFS client. To do this, follow these steps.

2. In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK.
3. In the Registry Editor window, locate the following registry key:

The DFS client is turned off if the value in the Value data box is 1.

You know what we do..after all this is just a machine. Backup your registry, then navigate that key. Add the key yourself and then set the value to 1. :))

In that article, you see the value 0 turns DFS on, as a 1 will actually disable the service, as per the value name.

So you actually need to enter a 0 (zero)
