Default Behavior

Named pipe service trigger provider is a kernel device driver. In Windows 10 it is starting at Kernel initialization. If Named pipe service trigger provider fails to load, the error is logged, and Windows 10 tries to restart, using the Last Known Good configuration. This may lead to repeated reboots, when the Last Known Good configuration is estimated as proper, but the service remains unable to run. Do not change the npsvctrig service configuration if you aren't sure that is actually what you need.
