WHS 2011 Will Not Connect to an XP PC

If one of your client computers is running XP which is connected to WHS 2011 then the client connector installation may not complete, instead displaying the following error:

The Connector has encountered an unexpected error.

Additionally, the NetTCPPortSharing service will be stuck in the "Starting" state and will not successfully start.

If you encounter this problem then Microsoft have a FixIt available which will correct these problems by altering permissions for you or you can perform this manually too.
