  1. Permanently Disable Auto Restart on Windows 10 Home 20H2.


    I have once again lost work and time because the absolute cancer that is Windows Update decided to restart while my PC was doing a bunch of work. Seriously Microsoft, give advanced users a way to disable this. I restart and install updates every couple weeks manually. Up until a recent update I had been using a force-installed version of the Group Policy Editor Not enabled on Home by default for stupid reasons to disable auto restart, but today after noticing that a restart interrupted a bunch of encoding I was doing I went to check the setting in GPedit and it is completely missing now, GPe

  2. Windows 10 auto restarts

    "Between all suggestions, including the one there, there is nothing that has worked." I hate to sound reduntant but I just had to repeat myself since it still applies.
    An additional factore that may have bearing is that at some point my system converted to trying to boot off of my external drive if it is plugged in. Nothing has worked in attempting to resolve that issue either. As I said it may or may not have a bearing on the restart issue.*sarc

    Windows 10 auto restarts

    Supposedly this solution works: Disable automatic restart Windows 10 - Microsoft Community

    I did those steps (going to gpedit.msc, etc..) because I want to disable the computer from auto-restarting. There is a bug in Windows 10.

    I access my computer remotely sometimes from my phone. Yet if I'm not near the computer, and auto updates restarted the computer, then the computer isn't going to fully turn on! I have BitLocker enabled on my hard drive. This means that I need to be at the computer, locally, to type in the password, to start up the computer. Auto updates causes the computer to restart, yet BitLocker prevents it from fully starting back up. This issue needs to be reviewed by Microsoft for some solution in Windows 10.

    But I found that link up there earlier today, and that is definitely a more preferred option, assuming that it works! I hope it does!

    auto trivia restart script?

    I know everyone is so busy here so I'm suggesting an auto restart script so trivia is a benefit instead of a burden. Can anyone make this script?
