Prevent Windows Update to reboot your computer, really

Feb 23, 2020  

I am running multiple computers on Windows 10, and I don’t want them to reboot automatically as a result of an automatic update; some are running VMs and having the host restart without me properly stopping the VMs is asking for trouble.

I tried to postpone reboots as far as I could, but sometimes, Windows seems to know better and just reboots my computer outside of the configured active hours

Reboot Blocker to the rescue

I’ve come across this little tool written by Ulrich Decker:

The way this tool works, is by permanently adjusting the active hours so that Windows never gets a chance to reboot outside of them. Simple, but effective!
