    I've disabled the Update Assistant and now want to have it back


    I've entirely disabled the Update Assistant, it was really really challenging to do it, but after many attempts

    I've done it following some of the instructions here (about 2 years ago):


    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...dates-in/57bcdc25-08c8-42cf-9bb8-d1cf2337b957

    Now, I want to put it back. How do I proceed?

    I'm hoping to update Windows 10 again to maybe stop some crashes and make it safer, though I don't want this Update to entirely

    modify my settings, options, customizations, remove programs, totally change the look and behavior of the system, hide menus, etc.,

    which Microsoft has the awful habit of doing as the abusive company it is.


    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot

    :)

    I've disabled the Update Assistant and now want to have it back

    Hibernation being disabled (perhaps by Windows Update)


    The hibefil.sys doesn't delete itself, nor does Windows delete it normally. I suspect it's down to the Update Assistant, did you look at removing it using the steps in this post as I suggested earlier?
