How to Prevent automatic restart in Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

Q: How to Prevent automatic restart in Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

Now that microsoft has removed the ability to force windows 10 to ask to be scheduled and given that "active hours" is a broken concept that doesn't solve any problem, how can I prevent windows from automatically restarting again? Is the only option to turn off windows update entirely now?

Preferred Solution: How to Prevent automatic restart in Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to Prevent automatic restart in Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

Hello tannim,

What is broken about active hours for you?

Active hours lets Windows know when you usually use this device. When a restart is necessary to finish installing an update, Windows won't automatically restart your device during active hours.

My new laptop ran Dell Updates overnight a couple of days ago and I had to power it up the next morning, only to discover it was a complete restart and the programs I had open were closed. Luckily I think I was able to recover everything from the closed applications, but is there a way to tell Dell Updates when I want to restart the computer?
Also, I was able to do this with Windows 10 before the anniversary update, but the option seems to have disappeared in the settings now.

Well,

I have been looking around for something about this, but strangely, the only people talking about this want to turn it off...

My problem is that I never ever seen my Win8 reboot himself, yet I have set my system up that he checks for updates at a time I am not on my computer and has to/can reboot if needed, but this just never happens, I always have to do a manual reboot when I get home, and that is really very annoying.

So, guess my question is, how do I force Win8 to download, install and restart computer if needed after updates at a given time ?

Though if by any chance I am on my computer at that time, I would like to have some notification or pop-up telling me I have to restart.

I don't see my login screen, it is all automated, my computer is always running 24/7, so I don't see any messages on the login screen and the Win8 update page is a major hassle to get to.

Any tips and advice appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
Bart

Hello, I just wanted to say here on the forums that making the Windows update restart my computer automatically, no matter what, is ridiculous. The last time the update had restarted my computer while I was using it, I went and put the settings to the option of "choose when to restart" or 'ask me first' or whatnot. Regardless of the fact that I consciously went and changed the setting so that it would not automatically update my computer, it still does it. The first time that it did it again, it wasn't a big deal. I checked the settings again and after some research learned that it would still probably restart my computer automatically without my say, no matter what, even though I had purposely changed the settings not to do so.

The first time this happened after I had changed the settings was not a big deal. The second time yesterday morning, however, was. To be short and not include the details, I had a video job interview at 9:00am. A very, very impotant interview. I turned on my computer around 7:30am, booted it up and left it on. When I came back to my computer around 8:45am, I opened the video software and prepared to connect to / recieve the call. This was when Windows Update decided that it was more important to restart my computer and apply an update to Windows.

This update took around 20-25 minutes. I never had an option to postpone or avoid this action. I thought about holding the power, but as most everything explicitly warns against turning off ... Read more

Dear Tech Support Guy,

Automatic Restart Needs Improvement in Windows 10

I would like to see a pop up warning say for example at least 10 minutes before an automatic restart is to occur in Windows 10. This will allow users to keep the automatic restart recommended setting, while at the same time, permitting them to finish their work. My Windows 10 desktop PC restarted with the huge November, 2015 Threshold 2 Update (Build 1511) in the early evening, about 7:45 PM. Restarts should be done in the early morning hours, say between 3-4am when most people are asleep.

I have selected the "Notify of Scheduled Restart." option, which I believe should be the default setting, as users in Windows 8.1 would get pop-up notices by default. Some questions:

1.) If a users selects "Notify of Scheduled Restart" for Windows Update, in Windows 10, what message will they see the next time a restart is scheduled? (Screenshots would be helpful.)

2.) Let's suppose that I schedule the restart for 3:30am when not using the computer. Will this time setting hold for all the next subsequent updates that need a system restart until changed?

Anytime I restart my computer or the power goes off it doesn't restart correctly. Basically, there is a black screen with a spinning circle with dots and it will stay that way for hours. The only solution I've found is to insert the windows 10 anniversary update usb I made and do a startup repair. But it keeps happening again and again.

However, if I shut it down normally, it starts back up just fine.

When I first installed the anniversary update it got stuck. I left the computer on for 12 hours with no progress (same spinning icon). However, I pressed the button and it fixed the installation.

I support a large community of seniors. Typically I have them running Automatic Updates, because they don't want to do their own maintenance. The most common complaint they come in with is there computers are really slow. It usually turns out that they have 30 to 40 updates pending on Windows 7. Like the rest of the population many have abandoned the PC for a tablet, for most of their computing because its faster and easier and they don't have to dink around with weekly updates and reboots.

I'm really worried about the changes coming early next year with Windows 10 becoming an automatic update. I think most of them could get along with Windows 10, except the amount of internet usage required. Most of my user's are getting by with Comcast's budget service of 3MBs. If they are so slow with Windows 7 security updates, what is their internet going to be like with Windows 10 still receiving such huge updates every week.

Anyway, I'm looking for the easiest way to prevent Windows 7 from downgrading to Windows 10 if automatic updates are left on.

Hello everyone,

I have searched around a bit to see if others have ran into this problem, but I have had no luck so far. When I start my computer, it pops up with the standard menu it uses when an OS error has caused a restart. I can't get it too load windows using safe mode, last known good configuration, or normal mode. I never even see the windows loading screen, it restarts immediately.

Here is what I have tried:
1) I ran a check disk using the recovery console but it did not fix the problem.
2) I manually backed up the SYSTEM, SAM, DEFAULT, SECURITY, and SOFTWARE files from the root\windows\system32\config folder. I then replaced those files with ones from a few days ago located in the root\system volume information\ folder. It did not fix my problem.
3) I'm about to re-install windows when I decide to press f8 on boot and disable automatic restarts on system failure just to see if I'm missing some sort of BSOD. Windows completely loaded without any problems.
4) This confused me so I reversed the actions I took in step 2 (above) just to see whether it would boot with the original files as long as I chose "Disable Automatic Restarts on System Failure." It loaded windows without a problem.
5) I restarted to see whether it would boot normally or not. Again, it wouldn't load windows with any options other than the "Disable automatic restarts on system failure" option.

This update will likely change the version of Windows 10 from 10586 to 14393.

Do you have Fast Startup turned on in Power Options/change what the power buttons do?

That speeds up boot time, but makes shutdown a bit slower, as then the system needs to write your current state to a hiberfile.

Hi all this update is killing me I called MS they downloaded it agene for me .I get freezing and bsod every time I play a game and sometimes at idle I updated, repaired every game I have .
I am tempted to buy windows10pro and block updates if I can.
sorry for the rant I am just frustrated.

A:Windows 10 anniversary update

Hello, if you search the web, you will find a significant number of people are experiencing significant issues with the anniversary upgrade including freezing. As yours is a custom built PC, there's no direct comparison or manufacturer to refer to. I've noted a couple who needed a BIOS update.

If yours works reliably with Win 10 10586 but not the anniversary upgrade, I suggest you roll back to 10586 (allowed up to 10 days after upgrading) and block the upgrade. This is/was possible even with the Home edition:
Stop Windows 10 from automatically updating your PC - CNET
e.g. by using Wifi only, as a metered connection or disabling the appropriate service.

You'd need to check what actually works now in the anniversary edition for Windows Home, as this, like features and GUI, may have changed.

This was provided for Home users.. I don't know if it still applies now.

Please bear with me.. I'm on my phone.. the Anniversary update must have taken over my computer. But.. is 5 hours normal? It did restart like it said a couple of times and the last percentage I saw was 59%, then the reboot again. It is "still" working on something. The circle keeps going around.
Thanks.. you're helping a "Senior" that is getting frustrated that something is wrong and doesn't know what to do.

A:Windows 10 Anniversary update

No. Not normal.

Something has gone wrong. Perhaps it will right itself, but it seems doubtful.

Have you some means of rebooting the Laptop either to a recovery disk or backup?

After updating windows 10 anniversary, pc often remains frozen for a few seconds. It's a common problem to other PCs.  Do you have a solution?

A:Windows 10 anniversary update

Valterred The Anniversary Update (AU) is a whole NEW version of Win10.  The previous was 10586; this is 14393 -- and the community Win10 forums are awash with folks whose machines, which had previously been running Win10 without problems, SUDDENLY developed problems either trying to install this Update, or after installing this Update.My desktop has been running Win10 without problems since the earliest days of the Insider Preview over a year ago and it's sailed through Update after Update without problems.  So, you can imagine my surprise when the AU trashed my PC -- to the degree that I restored it from an image backup. What MIGHT work is something known as a repair-install.  This is the least destructive of all the Windows recovery functions and rewrites the Windows system files, including the drivers, leaving your data, settings, and applications intact.To do this, you will need to use the link to download Win10 installation media and either burn a DVD or create a USB stick: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit).  Make sure you select the same version as needed for your PC. If you do not, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Once you have that media, follow the instructions in t... Read more

I can be in the middle of anything, a game, a paper being written, or a job being done... my windows update will automatically install an update, but sometimes will not ask me if I want to restart my PC.. it will automatically shut me down and restart.

I thought there was a way to disable it, but I can't find anything. I know that in Windows XP I could do so using the Group Policy service.. however, I cannot find a GP in Vista.

Does anyone have a clue as how to stop this from happening?

I feel like I am missing something here.

Hi,

I seem to have the same issue as this topic http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic458990.html

After having uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft Security Essentials, a scan found a virus/trojan and a message came up saying that Windows would automatically restart in one minute. The computer is now stuck in a loop of automatically restarting every time Windows opens. I've read the other topics on this and run the Farbar scan. I will put the log below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS. I have no other computer at home, so there may be a day or two between me replying to any messages as I try to use either my friend's computer or my computer at work.

Thanks in advance.

i am using a windows xp professional version 2002 sp3 laptop.

automatic updates have been installed on my pc and it pops up a window saying

"updating your computer is almost complete. you must restart your computer for the updates to take effect. do you want to restart your computer now ? or 'restart later'"

I dont want to restart now. hence when i am clicking on restart later, the pop up is coming up after another 15 minutes or so.

i went to task manager-> processes -> and ended the process called wuauclt.exe which is responsible for this process, but i notice that this process is automatically started within another 10 seconds .

though i understand that , it is good for me to restart my laptop and have a successful install of my updates, I still want to know of a method to
supress these updates until i like to restart my laptop

Hope somebody could help

thank you all in anticipation,

HI, I normally connect to client VPN to access their systems. To connect to VPN, IKE and Authip IPsec keying modules should enabled. I made it automatic from services, and after restart the computer, it changed to disabled. So i thought IKE service
will enable if i try to connect to VPN which also not worked. I have to enable it manually. Is there something that anyone can help? Any help will help here.

Thanks All.

I am having issues installing the anniversary update, it hasn't been offered through the normal update process so I have tried several times to download it manually but it fails everytime. The last few times it has got to 83%, blue screened with the message, Page Fault in Non Paged area, restarted and reverted back to previous version of windows. My current Windows 10 is working fine, all drivers are up to date with no errors, I have carried out sfc /scannow before trying the update but still no satisfaction. It happily installed on my older pc without an issue. Have checked for malware but nothing detected.
Anyone any suggestions as to what the issue may be?
