Windows 10: gpedit.msc suddenly missing | Can't check updates

    gpedit.msc suddenly missing | Can't check updates

    Hey guys, so I got tired of my laptop restarting without my authorization in the middle of the night because it was trying to be helpful and my boyfriend wasn't being any help when I tried to ask him about how he prevented it from restarting. (LSS: changing update settings does not help.)

    So I did a google. I found you can change it in the group policy editor. So I went ahead and did that.

    Now it's gone. I stg I freaking had it. I went through and disabled the update. I can't change this without gpedit.msc as far as I'm aware.

    I'm trying to check for updates before I restart my laptop so I can get rid of Yontoo entirely. Now I'm afraid to restart my computer because I don't know how long it's been missing.

    Can someone help me here? I have no idea what to do at this point, if it's even a thing I can download.

    Edit: Actually, the issue is likely lying with CrystalDiskInfo. A friend used it to look at my SSD because it's been acting super weird lately and now I've got, Yontoo, and SearchMoreKnow on my machine. Any and all help is greatly appreciated, even if it's just links because something​ is a pain in the ass.

    'kay, so this may not be that it's just missing, but that my SSD is going through rapid failure.


    I'll have news on Sunday.
