    Windows 10 checked for updates during active hours...


    I have my Change Active Hours set from 8am to 11pm and the "Automatically adjust active hours for this device based on activity" is off.

    Why would Windows check for updates at 10:25am today?!?
    You're up to date.
    Last Checked: Today, 10:25am

    Should I turn that Automatically adjust active hours switch back on??

    I believe the "Active Hours" parameter is just for restart after an update. The system will run WU during active hours, but will only notify you of a pending restart during active hours. In your case an automatic restart would occur after 11P and before 8A. My system AH is 6A to 11P, that way, I will see WU run and the pending restart is noted in the message center and in power window display, along with a button on the WU page. I also have Auto Adjust turned off.

    Hi, you have Pro, so if you don't want updates downloaded, set WU to 'Notify' using Group Policy (gpedit.msc). That way you will get a notifcation of each update which you have to manually approve.

    No, you shouldn't. You should instead use the following option 7 to schedule checks at your convenience: Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10
    It is as good as Wuchang bream, I suppose.
