[User #2064619]: Stop Windows 10 from force rebooting when updates are pending
Windows 10 has an annoying "feature" that it will force restart to install new updates when it deems your computer is not "in use". Lets turn that off.
1) Open Group Policy editor. (Win key + R, type gpedit.msc)
2) Navigate to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update
3) Enable "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations"
[User #2064619]: Workaround for stuck Windows Defender update on Windows 10
So if you upgrayedd'd to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8/8.1 you may have a stuck Windows update for Windows Defender (KB2267602). The Windows Update GUIGraphical User Interface on Windows 10 no longer seems to provide the user any way to hide an update. I found a SuperUser post that mentioned using Windows Update PowerShell Module to hide updates on Win10. It seemed to work for me for hiding the irritating KB2267602 update. YMMV.
After "installing" the Module at C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules, I ran the following from an elevated PS1 prompt:Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate Hide-WUUpdate -Title "KB2267602" # Substitute for your needs here. Get-WUList # Just to verify the update is marked as hidden.
