Policy Based QoS on Windows 7 in a workgroup

If you happen to be using Policy Based QoS on a Windows 7 machine in a workgroup you might find that it doesn’t work. Turns out you need to add the following registry key to make it work. File this one under the “Only wasted hours” category.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\QoS]"Do not use NLA"="1"
