Do you get different results if you disable DirectWrite rendering? chrome://flags/#disable-direct-write

Support for Custom.css was removed from Chrome a long time ago, so unless it’s been reinstated since (which AFAICT it has not), solution 1 will not work. Possibly related (though I’m not convinced it really got answered satisfactorily): superuser.com/questions/719907

Very odd that one Dev Tools screenshot shows 471 glyphs being rendered in Helvetica Neue, while another shows 296; are these for the same sample?

You say it is “proven that the font is not being delivered to me from the a server”, but where is the proof? Are you sure that there’s nothing (such as an extension) in your installation downloading missing fonts? What do you see on the Resources tab of Dev Tools?

comment How to *disable* automatic reboots in Windows 10?
Does enabling the Group Policy “Computer Configuration\​Administrative Templates\​Windows Components\​Windows U‌​pdate\​No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations” (HKLM\​Software\​Policies\​Microsoft\​Windows\​WindowsUpdate\​AU\​NoAutoRebootWi‌​thLoggedOnUsers) do what you want? (Perhaps that only works in earlier Windows versions; see also superuser.com/questions/4338)

comment Why isn't Helvetica Neue rendering properly?
The solution stopped working because user stylesheet (Custom.css) support has been removed from Chrome.
