    Interesting app that prevents pc rebooting in inactive hours

    Came across this app that updates active hours, so you always stay in active hours, and does not reboot pc to install updates. Whilst not a recommended action, it would be handy when running very long tasks.

    I have not tested it, so make an image backup first.

    Win10 RebootBlocker 1.1 Free download

    Prevent automatic reboot after installing Windows-Upates. This tool will install a Windows-Service that updates the 'active hours' in the background, so that Windows will not reboot while you are working. The german computer magazin c't writes in editon 03/2017 as of 01-21-2017: The 'RebootBlocker' written by Ulrich Decker is suitable to get the unwanted reboots under control. The setup installs a windows-service, that will update the 'active hours' every hour, so windows will never be allowed to reboot. We don't know yet any other working solution.

    Useful find- thanks.

    We don't know yet any other working solution.
    - not the same in principle, but setting updates to Notify means user approval is required- no download = no restart.
