Cannot restart automatic updating

That gives you a lot more control over the process. I have Windows 10 Pro Version 1709 OS Build 16299.15 @britechguy yea you're right, I should have checked, and I guess that's best practice, but things aren't always that easy The problem is that MS presume everyone is an idiot. Anyway, I think I may have found one way around this, but changing the Group Policy for Windows Update ... As I have Windows 10 Home I do not have Group Policy Editor.There's no "I'm not a plank, I understand the consequences" tick box. There is, however, a Restart Options link in the Update Settings area of the Windows Update Settings.Is there a way to cancel or stop a pending reboot (the 15 minute counter) on Server 2012? I know this is because it is new servers that I am dealing with and haven't changed the auto install updates feature yet, but Hey, I am forgetful sometimes!

Anyway, I think I may have found one way around this, but changing the Group Policy for Windows Update ... that's exactly what you need, we have this set on a POS server the update kept happening when work would start and kill all out terminals. but after you do updates make sure you check the policy settings again to make sure the update didn't change them back to default.There's no "I'm not a plank, I understand the consequences" tick box. Hi, in enterprise environments you don't want your machines restarting unless it's your intention. I use my PC for rendering animations, and last night I set if off render, ready for the morning, and guess what's happened?!

You could also choose to make your "inactive hours" during the working day and ask for notification prior to restart.

So is there a way to DISABLE the restarting of Windows 10?

Last night was a reattempt of the one interrupted the night before.

I do not wish to "maintain" Windows with any kind of separate paper log.

If I make any I keep a running log of what I did (including the actual file that did it and could be used to do it again) and the reason I did it.
