Prevent Windows from restarting your PC after updates
After the installation of major updates, Windows will display a small notification asking you to restart your PC. You can skip this procedure and continue with your ongoing task, but there's a risk, as Windows may automatically shut down your PC after a certain period of time, without your consent!
How to prevent Windows from restarting your PC after a major update? The procedure is explained below:
From the Start Screen, type regedit and press Enter to access the registry.
Right-click on "Windows" - New> Key.
Rename the key as WindowsUpdate
Then right-click the WindowsUpdate key and select New> Key.
Rename the new key as "AU"
Again right click on this new key and select New > DWORD (32 bits).
