Your question leaves some things open:
-was anything changed right before?
-was the computer restarted, for a test?
-does it happen in safe mode with networking as well? See instructions on how to start in safe mode

The computer you're trying to remote into is pro or enterprise and not the home version

Never said anything about remoting into just standard network login to a windows 10 laptop on a domain

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Nothing had changed or been installed - yes rebooted several times hadnt tried safe mode good thought will try that.

This was resolved in the end, the mention of Remote Desktop Services was a complete red herring in the login error coming back from Windows 10, using a different wifi profile fixed this so the error is completely bizarre and misleading however I expect or Windows 10 users as time goes by will see the same error appear in the same situation.

no one else answering had seen this error or was able to provide a definitive fix.

Thanks for posting some good information on this. I just had a Win 10 system that was doing the same thing and this brought me back to my Windows 98 days when we had similar issues with using Intel Wireless Profile Manager and the issues it caused to those during login and other system issues.
What's interesting here is that the Image  I have makes sure we do not utilize Intel WiFi and only uses Windows to manage Wireless. Since the system I'm working on is a laptop I am lucky enough to be able to shut wireless off if I need to, but got lucky after a hard shutdown that it would log into the system.

I've run a SFC and there were errors that it couldn't fix so I'm running a CHKDSK right now to see if it can find anything (it's an SSD Drive so this should be interesting). Thank you for at least posting your finding and helping others.

Turn off wifi and try logging in with a network cable, then re-create wifi profile

I found the issue for my setup. Apparently there is a known issue with the version of the Intel Wireless software that could cause this. I was able to get the latest Intel Wireless software and get it installed and the issue seems to be resolved now. I've tested this for the past hour using a combo of restarts, logoff, locking, and screen saver time-outs to see if the issue would comeback.

I'm going to give this to the user as it seems to be fixed. Hopefully this can help others.
