Windows 10 user received the new update very often, almost once a week Microsoft released new updates which fix the various problems with security and operating system.
The new patches are installed by default which led to restart the system without any notification.Below is the full Guide how to prevent the automatic restart during windows updates.
Open Control Panel.
Go to Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools. Click the Task Scheduler icon.
- In Task Scheduler, open the following folder Task Scheduler Library \ Microsoft \ Windows \ UpdateOrchestrator.
- There you will see a task called “Reboot”. Disable it using the appropriate command in the right click menu:
And Once you disable the Reboot task, Windows 10 will never reboot during updates or after updates automatically.
Some users report that Windows 10 is able to re-enable this task automatically. You can ensure that Windows 10 will not re-enable it by doing the following.
Rename the file name Reboot without an extension to Reboot.bak.
- Rename the file to Reboot.bak.
- Create an empty folder here instead and name it Reboot.
This will stop and prevent Windows 10 from re-creating the Reboot task and restarting the system.If you want to undo the setting just delete the Reboot folder and rename the file from Reboot.bak to Reboot.
