I go back to BIND 9.17.12 and is starts fine install BIND 9.16.18 
changed log on to “local system account” like I have done for years go 
to start BIND get error 1067 in:

system logs

The ISC BIND service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 
time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 
milliseconds: Restart the service.

And in Application logs show fine

Maybe its just windows 10 pro? Or is it possible to have bind coded to 
no longer run in win 10?
