I’m an hour into what looks to be a 3-4 hour cut & Windows 10 decides it’s time to reboot to do an update. Grrrrrr!!!
the Win10 update has been annoying the cr@p out of me for some time now. It is in a loop of downloading restarting and failing to start back up (blue screen of error) then I need to go back in and restart from the Safe Screen, which reverts back to the previous version of win10, and the cycle starts all over again. It is apparently a thing for a lot of people, but as yet I haven’t found a solution to it, so I have taken to ending the update task to try to prevent it from happening, but it is a band aid that inevitably falls off in a day or two.
I hope that your update is successful. Right now I am looking at one of my obsolete win7 laptops as a potential Maslow machine
Turn off the internet connection and it will not do updates. This is just how Windows is. It is possible to set update settings but in the past I had a system forced an update while un attended from Windows 8 to 10 one way trip due to space.
Been a Windows guy most of my computer life, but beginning to really like Liinux Ubuntu.
Unfortunately, almost everything I use that machine for is related to the internet in some way.
Yes, Windows 10 automatic updates are annoying.
I had a Windows 10 system built for work. Since the system will do data collection and runs furnaces over a long period of time I can not have the system re-booting whenever it feels like it.
There are a few way to stop Windows 10 updates.
This posting list a few ways.
The local company that build the computer put this software on the computer which does seem to work.
This is a tool to load that helps stop Windows 10 updates.
Thanks for the info!
I wish that Windows would fix their updates and go back to allowing the user to choose when to update rather than ramming it down our throats.
I also wish I wasn’t too lazy to learn one of the Linux flavors.
I strongly suggest Ubuntu 16.04 when your on a time budget.
If you want to be a bad ass, get Arch and make it what you want. It’s sort of the basic frame work of a linux OS and you build what you want in.
Hi Keith, we had a few systems at the office go into this infinite loop of trying to update & failing over & over.
I was able to resolve with this post:
And here’s another similar one with more fix options:
Thanks for that. I’ve seen one of those pages before, but not the first. I get a different error from the one shown, but will look into the solution. I am thinking that I will eventually do a manual install from media at this point.
