  1. MS Forcing an update and reboot


    I had Updates turned off on my system and tonight an update seemed to be forced and my system rebooted.
    after restarting all the data on my storage/work drive is gone!

    I have been working on a project for 3 week's and was being sent to Antarctica for research. Even the backup sorted on another drive is not accessible.

    This is the second time my system has rebooted and has ignored the settings for not updating or rebooting without my permission.

    I am at a total loss as to what to do at this stage, there is no time to rebuild the project, and to be honest I wish i had never moved from Windows 7

    :)

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond MS Forcing an update and reboot :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

  3. how to make sure windows 10 professional does not reboot after updates

    Aren't there menu settings somewhere that give options?

    If so please list the steps.

    Allow downloads but no installations? Then manual installation?

    Allow downloads and installations? But no forced or automatic reboot?

    MS Forcing an update and reboot

    Windows 10 and GFE forcing 353.62 install

    The forced updates have been the sticking point about W10 since it came on the scene. When using the preview version we understood that the updates were going to come and there was nothing to be done about it--MS said it would turn that off at release time then backtracked on it. The Insiders bitched and complained and protested but MS seems to have its mind made up on the forced updates.

    None of the tools, workarounds do much of anything and are a pain to use. The only solution is to turn off Windows Update Services but that is another can of worms. Will say that the OS sort of "learns" your machine and after a while doesn't force so many updates. If you want to use an older driver, a custom driver then W10 gets very unhappy. Have an idea MS is going to need to address this at some point before very long or a mulitude of folks are going to stay where they are or go back to whence they came re: W10.

    W10 does have the Feedback app and suggest everyone go there and keep bitching and complaining about the forced updates--hopefully MS will get a clue.
