    • there is one step missing, once you are in the command line, you’ve to type “net stop fortishield”, once this is stopped then you can turn it to manual in services.msc

      if you get the error 5 in the cmd, make sure you’re running it as administrator

      so, as a summary, what worked for me after been trying for 1h is (for Windows10):

      run “cmd” as administrator
      type “net stop fortishield”
      run “services.msc”
      look for “FortiClient Service Scheduler” and change it to manual
