Whenever you do upgrade windows 10 to the next major version (as in 10240->1511 or 1511->1607), you need to reinstall RSAT. RSAT holds the powershell modules for AD.

Did you install the module on your Windows 10 computer?, If not, it consists of the two following steps:

1. Download and install RSAT on your system.

2. Install the RSAT AD tools from Program Features of Windows 10.

...it works well but last week, I got this error...

Do you have Windows 10, Version 1607? Did you install KB3176934 (OS Build 14393.82)? This caused some PowerShell issues. Can you install or do you have KB3176938 (OS Build 14393.105)?
