    What is MSFTconnectTes? Is it a virus or what? Today when I got to my network at the office a number of Windows computers couldn’t connect to the internet. When I checked the wifi connection status the computer was not connected and gave information to say Actio Needed. When I manually said Connect the computer redirected to the MSFTconnectTest website and then quickly went to MSN homepage.

    This is a common problem with Windows 10 version 2004. A work around can temporary sort this. Open Regedit and navigate to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NlaSvc\Parameters\Internet,

    and change the EnableActiveProbing value from 1 to 0. This disables the default protocol that keeps redirecting the Windows 10 computer to MSFTconnectTest
