Windows 10 updates to be automatic and mandatory for Home users

Q: Windows 10 updates to be automatic and mandatory for Home users

From Windows updates to be automatic and mandatory for Home users Ars Technica Quote Windows Update can't be readily disabled in Windows Home and the license terms that all users must agree to allow Microsoft to install updates automatically The Insider Preview releases of Windows didn't include any way to prevent Windows Update from downloading and installing updates but it wasn't clear if this was just some quirk of the previews or the long-term plan Microsoft's previews often have special rules for things like providing automated feedback and hooking up online services and so this could have been part of that Build released to insiders on Wednesday changes that This build is believed to be the release-to-manufacturing Home to for and Windows automatic users 10 mandatory be updates build that OEMs will preinstall on hardware and as such it Windows 10 updates to be automatic and mandatory for Home users contains the finalized settings license text and so on This has immediately raised concerns Today if a Windows user finds that an update breaks something that they need they can generally refuse that update for an extended period This is particularly apparent with Service Packs these are both the most likely updates to break things and the easiest to reject Microsoft continues to deliver security fixes to the operating system both with and without the Service Pack for many months or years after the Service Pack's release For Windows Home users this isn't going to be an option If a future update breaks something essential the user is going to be out of luck

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 updates to be automatic and mandatory for Home users

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey,

I am an IT Technician/Teacher of a small school, and we are upgrading our systems to Windows 10 this summer but I have done some research and the best way for user profiles is to have one mandatory profile setup and everyone just uses the same one. I am using Win 10 Home. We have around 40 users on the network so far. I am looking to do this so we can easily standardize accounts and account settings.

Regards,
Phen

If you want to run Windows Home then you will have to agree to Microsoft's terms and those now state that you agree to have updates automatically installed on your system You're agreeing to this when you accept the terms of the licensing agreement you do read the EULA right Right Specifically emphasis added Updates The software periodically checks for system and app updates and downloads and installs them for you You may obtain updates and potentially 10 bad, the Home The Windows Mandatory ugly the good, updates: only from Microsoft or authorized sources and Microsoft may need to update your system to provide you with those Mandatory Windows 10 Home updates: The good, the bad, and the potentially ugly updates By accepting this agreement you agree to receive these types of automatic updates without any additional notice Since it's not just security updates that Microsoft Mandatory Windows 10 Home updates: The good, the bad, and the potentially ugly is going to be pushing out to Windows users but feature updates too users will have to trust Microsoft to exercise good judgment as to what it pushes down the pipes to end users Windows Pro users get a bit more control over their systems and will be able to switch over to the Current Branch for Business CBB version of Windows which will allow them to delay feature updates However delaying for too long will result in security updates also being blocked Mandatory Windows 10 Home updates: The good, the bad, and the potentially ugly Article I realize this is old news but the article brings up a good point Will Microsoft push out things like it did previously as optional i e the Bing toolbar And some updates have been toxic as the article mentions I usually like to wait a week before doing the updates to see if there are any issues Now you need Pro in order to avoid auto updates Even Windows Pro users will have to eventually update features or they will lose security updates So even with Pro you will have to accept a Feature Update even if you don't like it

A:Mandatory Windows 10 Home updates: The good, the bad, and the potentially ugly

You beat me to this.  Was just going to post the same article.  I did my due diligence warning there in the comments, won't repeat it here.  Did you read the EULA you got with build 10240, which is supposed to be the Pro EULA?  It's nowhere easy to find on your machine, you can't copy or paste or print or find it on the web.  But its clause is 'you agree to receive updates', milder in tone. But no warranty that you can put them off.
 
Right now I've a new update for that build, and MSFT wants me to schedule when it will be installed.  I did nothing.  Want to see what happens if I don't respond.

Just wondering where to retrieve the update 's MS said that we must have or we will no longer be receiving anymore Security updates I was always under the impression when my computer received automatic updates that would include any major updates Just did a History search of my computer and even though I check it daily system says mandatory Windows updates 8.1 found updates will install automatically it looks as though nothing may be Windows 8.1 mandatory updates going in The following are the latest dates that appear in my update History Would appreciate any thoughts Does it look as Windows 8.1 mandatory updates though nothing is being added especially Major updates Just wanted to add My PC desktop is fairly new came with W pre-installed When I check for updates my system says they will be done automatically Here are what I am seeing - - Intel Corp Driver Update Graphics every time this updated attempted it comes up FAILED Definition update for Windows Defender - KB Definition Successfully - - Someone must have tried to install these required updates Where can they be found if they are not automatically installed

A:Windows 8.1 mandatory updates

Hey there,
 
Where did Microsoft post about this?
 
Also the update that failed is an Intel graphics update not a Windows update, this may be a driver update or I might be wrong.
 
Usually on Windows 8/8.1 if there's an update it'll download them automatically and install them during shut down or over a period of 3 days.
 
So when you go to shut down it will say "Shut down and update". If you are getting this then your updates are fine.

I'm a system admin full of users that don't bother to install the windows patches and updates. Well I've setup the desktops to automatically check, download, and install the updates.

Does this only check at the time specified?

Does it only download critical updates? windows updates? drivers?

Does it prompt the user when it's downloading and installing? Does it force them to restart their machines?
 

A:windows automatic updates isn't so automatic

If you're talking about Auto Updates in XP, then you can specify an exact time for the updater to check and download and install the updates. RIGHT click My Computer/Auto Update Tab. Otherwise, depending on the internet connection, update looks only once a day I believe. ONLY critical updates are brought down, you must visit the site for driver and other updates.

I ignore the pop-up window from the notifications area telling me Windows updates are ready to install, I'm busy. Then I'm ready to do it, but there's no icon in the notification area to click to do the install.

I've even gone as far as to do a manual install, just to make sure I've got the latest update. I know I'm fully updated, and then the pop-up window comes up telling me it has that update ready to install again!

Is there a way to retrieve the updates Automatic Updates has ready to install? Reboot?!

Will manually updating confuse Automatic Updates?

A:Does disabling automatic Win Updates include automatic Device Driver?

Hello MM,

That will stop drivers from automatically being installed in Windows Update, but won't stop drivers from being available in Windows Update.

If you don't want drivers to be available in Windows Update, then you can disable this using the tutorial below. If disabled, you'll have to manually update (download and install) your drivers from the manufacturer.

Driver Updates in Windows Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 10driver-updates-windows-update-enable-disable-windows-10-a.html

The first tutorial below you posted will turn on/off automatic installation of drivers for devices. However, I would recommend to also disable automatic updates in the second tutorial below to be safe.

A:Windows automatic updates

Since you have a malware thread open, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic350917.html, I think it's important that you follow the suggestions I am about to give.Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.Louis

I have disabled windows 10 feature to maintenance/install updates when the user is idle to prevent booting up my pc in the middle of the night. It seems that this led to the problem that windows 10 doesn't update automatically at all. Every time i have to search manually for new updates. That's very annoying because i want Windows to just install new updates as soon as possible. What can i do?

I've investigated a bit more into my problem and i have found out that on Windows 10 Home Edition it's not possible to activate notifications when updates are prompted through Group Policy Editor. That's really bad news for me.

Greetings,

How long does it usually take for Windows 8 to download and install new updates?

When I had Windows 7 I chose the "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download them" option. When I purchased Windows 8 I decided to select Microsoft's "Recommended" option of Install updates automatically. Last night I just happened to notice that there were 10 important updates available. Now I could have just pressed Install, but wanted to see Microsoft's "Recommended You're set to automatically install updates" in glorious action, so I didn't press it. 27 hours later, and not only are the updates not installed, they haven't even been automatically downloaded. Little unimpressed with Microsoft's "Recommended" option. I can't help feeling I'd be safer with the un-recommended option of doing it manually.

Is it usual to take so long?

First, you want to see if the Maintenance schedule is checked. See step 5.

I have Win10 Home set up to my satisfaction but am annoyed by the automatic updates. If I upgrade to Pro will it allow me to have the choice of being notified when updates are available and allow me to install them or not? Something similar to Win 7's update handling would make me a contented user of Win 10.

I receive error messages everytime I start my computer. I have disabled automatic update in the normal place on the security center, but it still tries to automatically update. I had stopped this successfully, but with an error in judgement, I upgraded to new Microsoft update, thinking it would fix the error problems. It just put me back to where I was before I disabled it before. There is a place in the registry or somewhere it can be done, but I can't find my notes.

A:Windows XP automatic updates

Found the answer if someone else needs.

There are basically two ways that are safe to turn these off. Way number one is in your msconfig (Start then Run then msconfig then click ok). When you open the msconfig you will see a tab named "Services" click on that and decide on what you want to disable. The other way is your services policy editor (Start then Run then services.msc /s then click ok). Either way you will be able to disable them. Below is the list of services, what each is and recommendation to turn them off or on.

Thanks!

Hi BC,

For a ... long time now, I've always set Windows Updates to only notify me when new updates are available, and I choose when to download + install them.

However I'm read a lot, (including here), that for maximum protection I should always set Windows to automatically download and install updates by itself so I can have the latest updates. However, I've also read about situations where people install updates that come out right away, only to find that the update itself messes up their system instead. (Not sure if thats 100% true, but it's what I've heard before.)

So...my question is, SHOULD I change the Windows update settings to make it automatically update, or is it better to let the updates be on there for a while so MS can remove any updates that may screw up a computer instead of helping?
Thanks!

Hello espatcho.



It's prudent to install all the updates (though I'm sure some will disagree) the best way is to set WU to the "Check for Updates but let me Choose" option so it can't install any drivers or other "things" that may cause problems.

A:Windows XP automatic updates

Try this:

There are a number of things that can break Windows Update in Windows XP, including performing a repair/reinstall. For a fix, try these next steps:

Open Notepad or WordPad and copy/paste the following text:

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml2.dll
regsvr32 qmgr.dll
regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll
end

Save the file to your desktop as UpdatesFix.cmd (you'll have to click the "Save As Type&#8230;. Dropdown arrow on the right of the selection window and select "All Files" before you click the Save button).

If you'd rather not try the batch file, you can enter each line in the Run box one at a time and click OK after each one.

Double-click the UpdatesFix.cmd file; a command window will open, and you'll see a series of dialogue boxes saying DLLRegisterServer in *.dll succeeded. Click OK to step through the process.
Once all the dll's have been successfully reregistered visit the Windows Update site and try the Windows updates again to see if it works correctly.
Often you will have to download and install Windows Installer 3.1 and the Windows Genuine Advantage tool before you can download any more updates.
Windows Installer 3.1
Redistributable (v2) For Windows 2000 Service Pack 3; Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP; Windows XP Service Pack 1; Windows XP Service Pack 2
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...fc-5f56-4a38-b838-de776fd4138c&DisplayLang=en

An update for Windows Installer 3.1 is available for Windows Server 2003 SP1 and for the 64-bit editions of Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/898715/en-us

On rare occasions, a reregister will fail; in such cases, run sfc /scannow (have your OS CD handy) and then try again.

Other times, the reregistering will succeed, but Windows Update still fails. This can occur if the temporary folders of Windows Update have been corrupted. You can refer to these steps to rename these folders. Be assured the folders will be created again when you visit the Windows Update site again.

1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Run the following command in the opened window:

net stop wuauserv

2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir%\SoftwareDistribution and press Enter to open the temporary folder of the Windows Update engine. Then, rename the following two subfolders:

DataStore
Download

For example, rename DataStore to DataStore-old, and Download to Download-old.

3. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Run the following command in the opened window:

net start wuauserv

After you rename the above folders, please restart the computer in normal mode and visit the Windows Update site again.

If you are still having problems, post the specifics on this forum, and we will see if we can help.

A:Do I need to turn off Windows Automatic Updates?

Windows Updates are vital from many perspectives...

Next week you will be offered new updates.
It's also known as Patch Tuesday or Wednesday, depending where in the world you are...
On rare occasions (if a security vulnerability warrants it), Microsoft might release a patch out-of-band (meaning not on patch Tuesday/ Wednesday)... doesn't often happen though.

IMHO tis a good idea to have your computer set to inform you, but not download or install any updates offered.
Would also recommend you do a few at a time rather than oodles at once.

Tis a good idea to create a System Restore point before downloading....just in case!

My PC downloaded nine automatic updates last week but my IE9 will now not work. I spoke to my Broadband provider and it seems the latest windows updates may have caused this. They said to try a system restore which I did and this worked BUT, as soon as I switch my machine off, the same updates download and I have the same problem. Any ideas how to stop this happening? I am pretty non technical so simple answers would be much appreciated

A:IE9 will not work after Windows 7 automatic updates

Hello cheesedoff and welcome to Seven Forums.

Use the same system restore point to restore your computer to a date/time prior to when the Updates downloaded. Then turn off automatic updates. Go to Control Panel > Windows Update > Change settings > select Never check for updates > OK your way out of the open dialog boxes.



Once you've turned off automatic updating, you can manually check for updates by clicking that button in the second screen shot. Windows Update will show you all available updates (critical/important and optional.) They all might have a check mark next to them. Uncheck everything including any optional updates.

Once they've all been unchecked, start with the critical/important. Make a note of the KB number. Put a check in the first update and install it. If it installs correctly, reboot your system. Try using IE. If everything works, install the next update, reboot, try IE. Do this with each remaining update installing just one at a time, rebooting, and checking IE. All updates will either install correctly with no IE problems or if any update fails to install or causes problems you'll know exactly which update is the problem. You can ignore that update for the time being and continue installing the rest of them. After all have been installed you can re-try the problematic update.

I realize this will be a much slower process but it usually results in a trouble free installation of multiple updates. If you feel adventurous and want to make it a little less time consuming, you could check mark say, 3 updates at a time. Problem with that is if IE fails to work you'll have to uninstall all three updates and install just one at a time. Here's how to uninstall a bad update:

Well I just saw this in the news sectiom.

My Windows 7 desktop Home Premium with automatic updates worked till two nights ago.

New automatic updates yesterday froze most of the operating software and I had to wipe it completely clean to re-install everthing.

I patiently set up everything I have again today. First time round 59 updates went through. Second time round 183 (!!) updates and now the screen said failure to reconfigure, reverting changes.

I was told this has happened to MANY PEOPLE. The reverting has been going on for a while. How long should I wait? Overnight and then poweroff? Sounds like a reasonble gamble? If it crashes then I reinstall again. If it doesn't I perminantly switch off updates (I've had it) -- how do you disable updates please? Or set it up so that it let you pick and choose which updates you want?

Thanks in advance

Then I un-installed and re-installed McAfee
And I checked my McAfee Firewall and the Firewall was set to 'Lockdown'
Which blocked internet traffic.

My browser was working fine then. I then ran AVG Anti-Spyware full scan. which showed I had 13 cookies on my computer.

Then Windows automatic updates tryed to install 2 neccessary

Help!
I somehow managed to turn Automatic Windows updates OFF and now it's ghosted out so I can't select it to tun it back on in the control panel or Windows Security Center.
What can I do to make the (Automatic Updates) unghosted so I can turn it back on.
I am in the administrator account.
Thanks

I have been plagued with Windows XP automatic software updates for days, where the software update will state that the software is preparing for installation. The elapsed time (today) has hit 3 and a half hours, and whilst this is running (to no effect) I cannot install any other software.

Does anyone know the process name that will show up in Task manager for me to kill it...?
 

A:Windows XP automatic software updates

Open "Security Center". There you can turn off automatic updates, which I have done. You will receive reminders that auto updates is off and be urged to turn it on.

Be sure to go to the MS update site via the Security Center at least every second Tuesday of the month, which is when MS posts updates. You might want to do it weekly in order to catch any emergency updates.

Try this free program...Dial-a-fix...It should restore automatic updates. Usually these types of problems are caused by malware. Have you ran any scans for malware?http://djlizard.net/dial-a-fix/

I recently got a request to disable automatic Windows Updates on a Windows Vista system I maintain. I was floored. Why? Because, this is someone who NEVER runs any of the anti-spyware scans I instruct him to, mostly because he just never remembers.

He wants to disable automatic updates due to them rebooting his machine and he doesn't like having to restart his standard application mix.

Have you disabled automatic Windows updates? If so, why?

Peace...

Hello,

We had a malware attack, and successfully (we think) followed the advice here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-xp-home-security-2012

All seems well, except now we can't get Windows Automatic Updates turned on. On boot, the computer pops up to give us a warning that it's not turned on, and suggests doing it manually. However, when we do it manually via the automatic updates checkbox, it says we've changed it (and retains the chosen button as if we'd changed it), but Automatic Updates is still off.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You could maybe go too the following link

or maybe you need too check the update service is active to do so
go to Start > Run and type services.msc
Scroll down to automatic updates and double click on it, ensure the start-up type is automatic and the service is started. Then view the automatic update tab in system properties again.

Hi,I understand that you need help in order to get rid of the malware that is present on your system - But you need to help us first..I notice that you never scanned with an Antivirus previously before starting this thread - because you don't even have an Antivirus installed!This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.That's why I want you to install one first!!* Please install Avira Antivirus: http://www.free-av.com/This is a free Antivirus.Perform a full scan with Avira and let it delete everything it is finding.Then reboot.After reboot, open your Avira and select "reports".There doubleclick the report from the Full scan you have done. Click the "Report File" button and copy and paste this report in your next reply together with a new HijackThislog.Then we'll start from there, because it really makes no sense otherwise that we clean this up manually if an Antivirusscan is not present which should be able to deal with most and prevent further reinfection.

I had problems with my new computer (running Vista) as soon as I got everything installed and had to reformat it right from the beginning. A Tech Support person told me that it was probably due to some bugs in the Vista Updates and that I should turn off my automatic updates and not download any - that I really don't need them and that they often mess up your system. Aren't these updates supposed to fix bugs and correct problems as they're discovered? Is this a known fact with Vista - that their current updates are flawed or have bugs in them that can mess up your system? Should I continue to never download an update or should I disregard that advise and turn my updates back on?
 

A:Windows Vista Automatic Updates

That "Tech Support person" should be shot and never heard from again.

The updates are NOT flawed as stated, but yes a few have had problems. BUT, all are working that I know of. Even SP1 is working for those that the machines have been properly updated in preparation of SP1.

Is this computer a customs built one or from a BIG brand name one?

Hello,
I'm running a Dell XPS 420 that was upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit in Feb-2011. It had been running fine until recently when the automatic updates prevented it from booting and forced me to restore to an earlier point. I'd run the updates manually and all would be well. On July 3 some automatic updates came down and crashed my computer. I finally restored and got back in to normal mode. I tried to run the updates and the computer locked up. I've used the repair disk and was able to get back in to safe mode with networking. I ran CHKDSK /R with no problems. I also ran sfc /scannow without a problem, but it still would not boot. The systems screen didn't show that Windows was activated. Now the machine won't boot into any mode. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

A:cannot get automatic updates to work on my Windows XP

I`m guessing you`ve already tried fiddling with the update options such as `Automatic`, `Download but don`t install`, `Notify but don`t download` and of course, switching it off, rebooting and then switching it on again. Also make sure it`s set to Automatic in Services as well and not Disabled.

If the computer`s been repaired at some point using the XP CD, the MS updates are turned off and you`ll have to manually go to the MS update site, download at least one update and then it`ll switch itself back on again. (See link below)

I had the same problem on an XP box a few months ago. Ended up having to do a search on MS's website for that KB and manually download and install it.

With the Anniversary Update coming it got me wondering if I should disable automatic updates. I think I understand how to do it but wonder if I should? When I had Win 7 and Win 8 I set WU to notify me and I would decide which updates to install. there were very few I didn't install but doing it that way did have benefits. With Windows 10 I am not exactly clear if I do the same will I somehow mess things up since so much is dependent on updates pushed by MS. I'm pretty sure monthly updates for example typically contain many other updates within them that I wouldn't be able to pick and choose from anyway.

Curious as to how people have dealt with this issue?

Hi everyone,

Got a client who want to keep every computers up to date automatically.

I done it by pushing a GPO to search of update every day (22 hour by default sound good) and install the updates 23:00 every night then restart if necessary (confirmed on every computer).

But the KB890830 from the 11 october wait for manual install in windows update on every computer since it come up.  I launch the installation manually on a computer for testing if there is no trouble and all go fine.  It pop-up the agreement,
accepted, created the restore point and the installation was sucessful witouth having to restart after.

So why this update doesn't install automatically, is it because of the agreement? Do a WSUS is necessary for skipping this part? The WSUS at this client is down for some reasons and we can't go on every computer everytime to confirm if the update
will be install or is waiting.

Thanks you

I had Windows Update set to do automatic updates.  I was playing a game that uses full screen DirectX and when windows update decided it was time to restart it didn't display the message box asking me if I wanted to restart because it was hidden by
the DirectX.  It just shut me down in the middle of my game with no warning.  Let the development team know this is STUPID programming.  Needless to say, update is now set to download and notify.

A:Unable to set Automatic Updates for Windows

Hello and welcome to TSF.

Apologies for the long delay in response. We have a large number of HijackThis logs to handle and it's taking us longer to catch up. If you haven't received help elsewhere already and still require assistance please post a fresh HijackThis log and a StartupList log produced by HijackThis as below:

you are using an older version of HijackThis. Please do the following to download and install the latest version of HijackThis v2.0.2:

CLICK HERE to download the HijackThis Installer:Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Double-click on HJTInstall.exe to run the program.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.
Accept the license agreement by clicking the "I Accept" button.
Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click "Save log" to save the log file and then the log will open in Notepad.
Click on "Edit -> Select All" then click on "Edit -> Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and paste the log in your next reply.
Do NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet! Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

You may uninstall/delete the older version once you have successfully downloaded and installed the latest version of HijackThis v2.0.2.

=========================

Please open HijackThis.
Click on Open Misc Tools Section
Make sure that both boxes beside "Generate StartupList Log" are checked:List all minor sections(Full)
List Empty Sections(Complete)
Click Generate StartupList Log.
Click Yes at the prompt.
It will open a text file. Please copy the entire contents of that page and paste it here along with the HijackThis log.

It has been going on for a couple of months. All of his windows automatic updates fail. Each giving a different error code (I can get them all if needed). I've attempted to read through some Microsoft forums and attempted all of the "fixes" I could find to no avail.

I've run the readiness tool and SFC and attached the logs to this post.

KB9540760, KB890830, KB950759, KB951698
Since these were installed, I have lost all my email and Internet Explorer settings, including everthing in my inbox, settings and Internet Favorites.
I am guessing that the update messed with my Registry settings, but don't know where to start getting things back to where they were yesterday!

I can be in the middle of anything, a game, a paper being written, or a job being done... my windows update will automatically install an update, but sometimes will not ask me if I want to restart my PC.. it will automatically shut me down and restart.

I thought there was a way to disable it, but I can't find anything. I know that in Windows XP I could do so using the Group Policy service.. however, I cannot find a GP in Vista.

Does anyone have a clue as how to stop this from happening?

I feel like I am missing something here.
 

A:Help Disabling Automatic Restart for Windows Updates

The best way is to change the auto windows update behavior.

Control Panel>Windows Update>Change Settings

Now select "Download Updates but let me choose whether to install them" Hit OK.

Now you control when updates are installed.
