    Hello Bingus,

    Selecting Notify to schedule restart in the tutorial below can help to stop the automatic restart for Windows Update.

    Hello Brink,

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, doing that helps for a while, but after a week and a few days, this option, respectively the choose of dates are not available anymore and the shut down will be forced.

    And, if you miss to schedule, to set a date, so to response one of these messages after a Win update the computer will turned off, restarted at "a time you won't use it" as the messages say.

    I would like to completely turn off that absurd behavior.

    Many thanks again
