    First off... **** that. They might as well write "No need to select if we **** your PC up - we do it for you!"

    I managed to solve the problem using @fracking4oil's suggestion, but to do this I had to install gpedit.

    Instructions for anyone who encounters the same problem:
    At the top right of http://drudger.deviantart.com/art/Ad...-msc-215792914 , you can download the setup file.

    This page: How to Enable (gpedit.msc) in Windows 7 Home Premium, Home Basic and Starter Editions? - AskVG explains how to install it if you have issues (only follow the extra steps if you have a username with spaces in it). Make sure to follow the steps in note 1, after installing.

    I had tried this before and it hadn't worked. This time in a last ditch attempt, i tried deleting the two folders that note 1 mentioned from the system32 folder (woo living on the edge -do not delete files from system32 unless you know what you are doing). I then ran gpedit.msc directly from system32 and it worked (not the windows+R dialog).

    It seems to be a bit finiky, which is to be expected as this software was written for windows 7, not 10.

    I have the opposite problem. I leave my device on all the time unattended and I want it to force restart. It says it has scheduled the restart but the time passes and it never happens. It just piles up updates that need a restart. Any suggestions as to why it won't force restart?

    You can go to settings and then update and security then advanced and notify to schedule updates it will then not restart when your using your pc.
    This is how my PC is set up. I set the update for 5:30 PM and the reboot was done. At 8:30 PM, Windows 10 rebooted itself when I was in the middle of something. No warning. I have to assume that Windows 10 did it for a reason.

    How can I prevent these reboots or is there a place I can look to see why the reboot was done?

    ^^^^ Me too, my Win10-Home reboots just about every night. I have shut off auto updates and nothing seems to help. I'd rather not roll back to 8.1, but this is annoying !!!

    My guess is its not a bug, its something Microsoft have done intentionally. either way is still happens to me sporadically
