    Great news.

    I guess you must of had an update in the pipeworks since this should only affect when you restart after an update.

    I don't know exactly what had happened. First off, Automatic Update on both PCs is always turned off as per choice. Second, For FCU I din't wait for Microsoft to give me the signal through Windows Updates; I went directly to their site and got it from "Update Assistant" on the same day October 17, 2017. Finally, my credentials for the subscription to Office 365 are the same I used to log in to my PC. They must have changed the settings during the update, for I never had this problem before with previous builds.

    At any rate, I really nailed it this time around and I am so glad that it is all over.

    Thanks again for your support, Shawn!

    Update: @ Brink,
    I got the tip on how to fix the problem from a tech support friend.

    It would be helpful if you could explain what this option does. I read the tutorial but I’m still not clear on one point. Even with the slider turned on I must enter my PIN in the login screen after a Windows Update is installed. What would be different if I turned it off?

    Hello radiowaves,

    This setting is basically to allow Windows to sign back in to your account if it automatically restarts the computer for a Windows Update.

    It doesn't apply if you manually restart.

    If I turned off the setting would the only difference be that I would have to sign in before an update is done? Also, for a major update like the FCU that restarts several times, would I have to sign in multiple times for it to finish?

    If turned off, you would only have to sign in once as usual after Windows Update automatically restarts your PC.
