    Rebooting After Updates


    Hi since this update KB5004296 was installed my PC yesterday, it reboots on its own.
    After this update was installed today KB5004331, it rebooted on it's own.
    Anybody else experienced this problem, is it a problem?

    That's not a problem. It is supposed to reboot outside of the busy hours that you set.

    Hi, The first update rebooted to finish installation, then it randomly rebooted.
    The second update didn't need rebooting for installation, however it rebooted randomly.

    Sorry, misunderstood the situation. It sounded like you were saying that it rebooted to finish the installation of the updates.

    Have you examined the event logs to see if it lists a reason for the reboots?

    Then please do so. One of the restarts might not even be related to an update. Please examine and research the event id and advise.

    This is not entirely clear. Do you mean you are now experiencing repeated random restarts?
    If so, have you tried uininstalling these updates?

    Note these are preview updates. If you wish, you can discontinue receiving these by enabling the relevant group policy.

    Otherwise:

    Do you have Active Hours set in Settings?

    As you are concerned about restarts occurring after an update, and you have Pro, did you know there are various group policies you can use to change this behaviour? At least one of them relates to Active Hours.
