Enrico, please do not think I am trying to get at you, perhaps I could 
have worded that better, but I just dashed off a reply.

The problem is that I am not the one who has control  of your network 
and can only offer advice from a distance. As I said, I cannot get the 
latest Win10 to crash and Windows has admitted that this is their 
problem if it does crash.

Can you please download this: 

Run it on the Samba machine that you are trying to connect Windows to 
and the post the output, do not attach it to the post, this list strips 

Perhaps you have some small setting wrong :-(
