    windows update auto restarting even if disabled


    My PC is auto restarting after an automatic windows update, even if the task (in task scheduler) "reboot" is disabled (under "Microsoft/Windows/UpdateOrchestrator").

    Even if that task is disabled, it is running. I see "Last Run Time" is "2019-09-11".

    How to trully disable the reboot ?


    Thanks

    Hi, do you have Home or Pro?

    Do you use Active Hours in Settings to prevent restarts during a period of up to 18 hours?

    I have Home.

    In active hours, I can set up to max 18 hours period, so it will still auto-restart in the remaining 6 hours.

    There are a couple of 3rd party tools mentioned here:

    The topic has been discussed previously so you will find other threads on it- feel free to search the forum.
