Add a task to start Windows drivers using the Task Scheduler

Introduction

This page is part of the CIFS-over-SSH tutorial for Windows 7, 8 and 10. You are reading this most likely because some necessary Windows drivers did not start automatically after following the tutorial.
In this section, we will add a task using the Windows Task Scheduler to launch those drivers at system startup time. This part of the tutorial is split into the following parts:

Creating a task to start the 'SMB' driver

Of course, now that we have disabled the automatic startup of the 'SMB' driver we need to start it manually when Windows comes up, or rather, when a user logs in. For this we use the Windows Task Scheduler: The task is now configured. Close the Task Scheduler and reboot to verify that the driver now starts at system bootup time.

Creating a task to start the 'LanmanServer' driver

Of course, now that we have disabled the automatic startup of the 'LanmanServer' driver we need to start it manually when Windows comes up, or rather, when a user logs in. For this we use the Windows Task Scheduler: The task is now configured. Close the Task Scheduler and reboot to verify that the driver now starts at system bootup time.
