    When I have opened programs running and I click Start>Power>Shut Down, I have a screen popup that tells me to close the programs, does that mean that AutoEndTasks and MusNotification.exe settings are correct already?

    Yes. Do not sleep appears to be working.

    Anyway before I did change anything in the registry since after I installed Win 10, all the while when I press Start>Power>Shut Down I did see the screen telling me I have Don't sleep or other programs running and ask me to 'shut down anyway' or 'cancel'.

    Maybe Don't Sleep does not work for some updates or Home version, not sure. Will monitor to see if it can block update restarts in future.

    Glomming onto this thread to say that I and several Virtualbox users are stymied by Windows 10's lack of a way to prevent auto reboot for updates on their host PCs. I'm trying NJC2's method and have reported it in the Virtualbox forums, to see what happens. Hoping for a good result! Good detective work, NJC2!

    I'll probably try this if a few more people tell us it works. I dislike playing around with Window's guts if there's an install/uninstall program that will do the job. Also, part of the problem with providing fixes lies in differing options/capabilities between Win10Pro and Win10Home. Win10Pro allows more control/options than the Home version. Don't Sleep definitely does not work on my machine.

    Making NJC2's fix simpler, wouldn't it be great if {{SOMEONE}} came up with an exe file that would kick our computers off idle after four minutes?

    Soo (edit here) I searched around and found an .exe file named "No Jiggle" (free). I've installed it and it keeps the mouse active preventing the computer from going idle. So when I'm not using the computer for awhile I'll just turn off the monitor. Hope it works!
