    Unfortunately this is a Windows 10 Professional Edition option and will not help the majority of the people that have Windows 10 Home. Too bad. I was hoping I could use it.

    Windows 10.4 Home 1709 x64

    Reboot is just a task, which should be possible to be disabled, even on Home.
    Once the new updates will roll out, I will try to disable reboot, maybe like this:

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\Reboot" /Disable
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\USO_UxBroker_ReadyToReboot" /Disable
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\sih" /Disable
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\sihboot" /Disable

    Thanks. I would be willing to give it a try.

    For me it's very very simple....

    Every other day I run this elevated script:

    sc config "wuauserv" start= disabled
    sc stop "wuauserv"

    and on patch tuesday

    sc config "wuauserv" start= auto
    sc start "wuauserv"

    The former disable's WU entirely and the latter enables it... problem solved!

    Screwed forced reboots...

    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 tried and it worked fine to me. Good

    Hello, I have 3 PC on which I do not always work and sometimes cannot see windows future restart warning, can more people confirm that this trick worked on windows 10 home ? I can't take the risk to screw anything.

    Thank you for your help, it's so incredible that Microsoft keeps bitching in 2016... I feel so stupid to have to handle this, but at the same time I would feel more if I was using a Mac...

    I installed Group Policy Edtor in Home edition and navigated to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates tree. I found a setting "No scheduled Restart for Automatic Updates installations". Enabled this, there are no options to set. Will see how it goes.
    If it annoys me with prompts to restart there is another setting for "Re-prompt for restart" with a setting for the delay. Or there is "Configure Automatic Updates" with several options. You can opt to manually download too.
