Has anyone else noticed that on the new Windows 10 1903 Builds (Win 10 Professional), that a Scheduled Task (\windows\system32\provtool.exe /turn 5 /source LogonIdleTask) is forcing a network stack reset?
Our NDIS Lightweight Filter Driver is running into issues from this Scheduled Task, since the task triggers a FilterReset() on the driver. Our users are usually actively streaming packets from our device by the time the scheduled task runs, causing failures. The filter driver resets and the user loses connection to the device. In fact, they usually have to re-enable the NIC to restore functionality. We were able to manually run the command line and produce the same failure state as waiting for the scheduled task to trigger.
Does anyone have information on what the Provtool does, especially the /turn 5 and /source LogonIdleTask? I have seen others reference the same command line elsewhere. This issue is new to Windows 10 1903 build (at least, between 1803 and 1903). Looking for any advice/similar experiences.
