    Both times I was in the middle of some important multi-day data crunching.

    I've checked event viewer, filtering for ID 1074 , 6006 and 6008 and it appears RuntimeBroker has requested the shutdown on behalf of Windows Update - Which was disabled.

    To be clear: I would rather this machine was a zombie botnet node than ever restart. They can 0-day their way to my bandwidth all they want, I just need the CPU cores. I need only a few KB of connectivity to check progress and understand the security risks. No lecture please.

    How do I completely disable whatever mechanism re-enables windows update?

    Secondly, is there grounds for a class action lawsuit here as this was not the fault of the software but a deliberate and planned action carried out manually by Microsoft.

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

    Windows 10 update being enabled.

    Sounds like task scheduler forces it to restart, course in svc.msc i make sure to deselect it from restarting after it fails.
