    W10 attempts to update on my old computer and keeps restarting it


    For whatever reason my old computer prevents w10 to update. It stops my processes from running very frequently about every couple of hours. How do I stop W10 from updating, restarting and interrupting my current running processes since I know the new W10 updates will not take hold on my computer?

    :)

    W10 PC Keeps Restarting

    Hi Dave,

    A corrupted Windows system files after the update is one of the possible reasons why your computer keeps restarting. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Do you have a third-party security software installed?
    • Are you receiving any error messages?
    • Are you able to boot to desktop?

    Meanwhile, you can try running your computer in safe mode and check if you will experience the same issue. Safe mode starts Windows in a basic state, using a limited set of files and drivers. You can follow the steps in this

    We'll be looking forward to your response.

    W10 attempts to update on my old computer and keeps restarting it

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    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 W10 attempts to update on my old computer and keeps restarting it :) Best regards.


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