    Windows Restarting When It Wants


    I had this post, about windows restarting when it wants to: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/windows-update-restarts-whenever-it-wants/624c9182-afcf-4f23-8bc2-1c98670ab349

    Which also referred to this post: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...oting-by/88ca4837-659a-4b23-a6ed-47f17d183beb


    However nothing works, and windows still updates and restarts when it pleases.


    It is completely unacceptable, that hardware I have purchased and own, can be restarted by a third party whenever it wants. I had a significant number of applications running, including programs that were processing data and running scripts, all of which have been lost, costing me hours of time.


    Windows needs to let the user choose "restart now", otherwise not restart, like the old days.


    So far, since the advent of windows ten, I have lost hundreds of hours, been delayed in presentations while windows "updates", and generally lost time, energy and money - none of which we have an excess of.


    This needs to STOP.

    :)

    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 Windows Restarting When It Wants :) Best regards.


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