Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

To work around this problem, turn off SMB signing on the server:
Start Registry Editor.
Locate, and then click the enablesecuritysignature value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanmanserver\Parameters
On the Edit menu, click Modify.
In the Value data: box, type 0, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
Stop and then restart the server service, or restart the computer.

Apologies, I assume you replaced all of the hardware if that's the case stated by SysExpert

This is brand new computer, and we also had the same errors on the old (replaced computer.)

Unfortunately, even new hardware can fail.

I would run a full set of diagnostics for 24 hours
