I know there have been many topics about this, and believe me, I've already read dozens of them, as well as following numerous guides like this one, but no matter what I do, my Windows 10 still keeps restarting whenever it wants to install it's updates. I just step off the computer for a few minutes to get a coffee or a bathroom break, and then I come back, only to see another update going on, all my unsaved work gone. No prompts, no warnings. Sometimes it even begins restarting while I'm still working on my computer, and then I'm forced to wait, sometimes for half an hour, until it finishes the update.. I am an advanced user, and I already disabled everything in settings, services, registry, user policy, even disable update services via Task Manager, but they keep restarting themselves to do their bloody work. I even wrote a .bat script to keep disable all running update services, but the bloody 10 somehow still gets around it.
I am frustrated beyond belief. I must have already spent like 10 hours investigating this, going through guides, forums, etc., but they all suggest all too familiar steps, which I already did, and checked numerous of times.
What else can I do? Is there a way to hard-disable restart altogether, so that Windows itself is blocked from that function unless I run it manually? I am tired of fighting, and I want this auto-restart feature gone, forever.
P.S. Before you ask, my computer is clean of viruses, malware, 3rd party apps or anything else that could be related. No hardware problems, no BSOD's or anything.
P.P.S. Some people suggested that my question is a duplicate of How to disable automatic reboots in Windows 10? . However, it is not, because I have reviewed all the answers to that question, tried all the suggestions, but they were ineffective to solve the problem - Windows still restarts to install it's updates.
