Windows 10: Disable automatic reboot for updates
Thank you for ending this frustration.
[QUOTE=fracking4oil;350686]In the run dialog box (winkey + R) type "gpedit.msc" (without quotations), hit enter
Navigate to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Update
Double click on "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations"
Enable it and click apply
Attachment 32480[Three days of aggravation ended. Thank you.]
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.
Be nice to all, please?!
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...
Be nice to all, please?!
I use this one, but because it is related to my settings, but your is simple and effective.
Who leaves their PC off???
It works :)
I tried and it worked fine to me. Good
Block Windows 10 au restart for update
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.

How to Enable or Disable Automatic Updates for Windows Update in Windows 10
Windows 10 will automatically check for new Windows Updates at the time you have set in automatic maintenance.
Windows 10 will automatically download and install...
Windows 10 seems to like rebooting without my permission - such as when I have a fullscreen game open, and I also miss the notification to postpone. How do I disable this? I don't have windows pro and thus cant use gpedit. The registry keys various...
I don't use these garbage "apps", nor do I have a Microsoft Account attached to my computer.
Why am I forced to update these bloatware, preinstalled "apps" automatically?
Seems, I read that the home premium edition automatic windows updates could not be disabled like win 8.1 can in services can anyone confirm this? :)
Right now, after installing Windows 10, I only have the option to Automatically Install Updates or Notify to Schedule Restart.
This is a problem, I want to be able to choose what drivers I install. I don't want windows automatically installing...
