Permanently Disable & Prevent Automatic Restart of Windows Update in Windows 10 – Tech Journey

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/22

Yay!

Windows 10 automatically restart the PC whenever it installed updates that required a mandatory reboot in order to finish installed. User can no longer delay or postpone a restart indefinitely. […]

The source Permanently Disable & Prevent Automatic Restart of Windows Update in Windows 10 – Tech Journey [WayBack] describes steps to fix a bunch of scenarios:

  • Disable Reboot Task
  • Stop the re-enabling of Reboot task
  • Group Policy (but people reported that Windows 10 ignores the policy when comes to mandatory reboot required for installing updates)
  • Prevent Updates from Installing by forcing your WiFi to act like a “metered” connection
  • Prevent Updates from Installing by setting the Configure Automatic Updates setting in your Local Group Policy Editor
    • For Windows 10 Home edition (that misses the Local Group Policy Editor) setting the above value directly in the registry
