Windows Missing Administrative Shares

Today I went to one of our customers and they were complaining about not being able to access admin shares on their clients’ computers. Admin shares are those following:

net share







Those shares worked when they were manually created, but they disappeared during next reboot. Solution was found by creating GPO to create followin registry key:

Reg key:


Type: DWORD Value

Value: 1

When computer was rebooted all administrative shares were recreated and customer was happy 🙂
