Stop Windows Update From Automatically Rebooting Computer
Mar 21, 2016
As you are aware, Windows 10 PCs have been programmed to automatically check for updates and install any updates they find. Windows 10 is also set to normally schedule reboots for when you are away from the computer. Is there a tool available to stop Windows Update from automatically rebooting your computer?
I can't have a conversation with my friends while I have this problem.
So I have the sennheiser pc 363d headset, the mic volume has to be set 100 volume or I can't be heard. However windows 10 keeps automatically turning down my mic volume from 100 to 90 and lower making me mute.
Is there a way to stop Windows 10 from turning down my mic volume?
Can I stop windows(10) from automatically installing drivers for my Radeon graphics card? I have an HP dv6 with switchable graphics and I only want to have the Intel HD 3000 graphics working because whenever I install the drivers for the Radeon graphics the laptop will not boot into windows on the next reboot.I have uninstalled the drivers but it keeps re-installing it and the screen flickers every time it installs it.
I have windows 8.1 and I DON'T want windows 10. It is already downloading. I can see green downloading bar in windows update. I had w10 but it was so buggy that I don't want it again. How do I stop is downloading?
i'm new to technical previews (well i had the windows 8 tp but i was a kid who didnt know what day it was) and i want to know if windows 10 automatically updates whenever a new build is available or if i have to reinstall windows
Shortly after the "Get Windows 10" icon appeared in the system tray of my Win 8.1 installation, I made the mistake of clicking on the "Get Windows 10" icon and "reserved" my copy of Windows 10. After some research, I elected to cancel my reservation for Windows 10 and did so by again clicking the "Get Windows 10" icon and going through the process to "cancel" my reservation. (I subsequently read Brink's fine post on "Get Windows 10 Icon -Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1" and did option four to uninstall the KB3035583 update). Now when I go to windows update and "search for updates", the search result is "install windows 10" though it does allow me to view "all available updates" which includes numerous "important" security updates as well as a few "optional" updates, one of which is Windows 10. I select the "important" updates, deselect the optional updates (including windows 10), and click install then get a dialog that "Windows 10 setup files are being downloaded" and an option to "cancel" (which I do). How do I stop Windows Update from downloading Windows 10 setup files and just download the "important updates" to secure my present installation of Win 8.1?
Windows 10 keeps installing the ASUS Smart Gesture touchpad driver on my laptop. The driver is garbage and it runs three memory resident processes, which seems rather excessive for a touchpad driver. The default Windows touchpad driver works perfectly well, so I want to use that instead of the ASUS driver. However, if I uninstall the ASUS driver Windows Update quickly reinstalls it.
I disabled automatic driver installation when I installed Windows 10, as you can see here:
Despite that Windows update keeps installing the ASUS Smart Gesture driver.
How to stop this damn notification from popping up every five minutes? I've tried everything. I've let it scan my computer (both quick-scan and full-scan), but within five minutes the notification pops back up again. I've looked online and found that it can be down to a certain setting in CCleaner, I use CCleaner but the option that all the solutions say to untick isn't present in the latest versions.
I had windows 10 pro insider preview build on my cpu and said that my license was going to end.I went online to the Microsoft page and when to get windows 10 for free.Once I downloaded and finished doing its thing it asked me to sign in and I did, then later it started resetting.
It's been going like this for about an hour now, it loads up in the windows 10 loading screen and keeps rebooting or restarting over again.I won't even let me go in safe mode
Windows 10 Pro and I am having an issue with my Touchpad driver, it seems to want to mess up and not move to where I need it to go, so I uninstalled it from the Programs and Features menu, but my issue is it keeps popping back up in Windows Update and installing on its own, I don't want the driver for it as it doesn't function correctly with it installed it works great when its not installed so how can I hide it
I recently I was attempting to upgrade my OS to Windows 10. In the middle of the process my computer shut itself off. I was attempting a manual install of the OS, as described on [URL]... . I managed to completely finish the download before the computer shut off. Is there any way to continue from where I left off? Without restarting the download?
I've just bought a little Gigabyte Brix 1900, but when installing Windows 10 I got an error saying:
"Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed"
It turns out that the unit needs a BIOS update to the latest version before Windows 10 can be installed. I just wanted to post this information here, as I imagine this will be a frustration to many others!
With a few workarounds, you can update the BIOS from within the Repair > Tools > Command Prompt options. Just be sure to download the DOS BIOS zip from the gigabyte website (which won't run properly, but contains the ROM), plus the Windows BIOS tool which you can then run from the command prompt.
So, first up, was getting crashes with my windows 10 after installing nvidia driver 359.00, mostly crashes that recovered automatically, then started getting Blue Screens. Tried 359.06 and had the same problems. Rolled back to 358.91 which originally had been stable but after the rollback became crashy, but less than the other 2 drivers.
Had a HARD crash while playing Dragon Quest Heroes, rebooted from that and could not boot into windows whatsoever. Had to pull the card, use the motherboard video, removed the nvidia drivers entirely. I can boot into windows as long as there are no nvidia drivers while using my GTX 670. While attempting to reinstall any nvidia drivers with maybe 5% of the green bar on the installer showing it goes black screen, sits for a bit, then reboots. BIOS looks fine, windows splash comes up, not the password screen, black screen there. Tried what I could find to put the password in and get past he black screen but nothing happening.
Is there a problem with my card or my windows install? I'd rather not buy a new card but its always a pain reinstalling windows if I don't actually have to. how to export all my windows settings if I do need to reinstall.?
Why can Microsoft understand I don't want to use these POS Realtek drivers. I use to disable driver updates from Windows 10 by going into Device Installation settings and Never install drivers from Windows update but now since the last stupid update everytime the POS Realtek drives install automatically no matter how many times I roll back and remove them. I hate the Realtek drives because the audio is super loud and sounds terrible. I just want to use the Microsoft HD Audio Driver which sounds great and uses little resources but no Windows 10 decides that the POS Realtek driver is better.
It is fitting that I should start this discussion on the new Win10 site. With the latest update to 9926, I finally got the sleep menu to show up (updating the graphics driver) but the computer will not automatically go to sleep at the appropriate time. The other versions worked. I doubt this will last as I expect more updates to fix this but so far, the usual suspects have been tried and it is non functioning.
The sleep button and the power button set to sleep work fine. So far, nothing has woken it up but I have a sneaky suspicion that Homegroup now wakes up the computer when another machine asks for its shared folders.
I set my computer to sleep after 25 minutes, and it worked until the day before yesterday. Since then it just doesn't go sleep automatically but I can put it into sleep mode manually. I guess I might installed something that doesn't let it sleep. But I only installed Origin in the last days, and it's not even running.
After I upgraded to Windows 10, my system won't go to sleep automatically. The display will turn off after the idle time I've set but the computer remains on. I've tested with setting it to sleep after being idle for 1 minute, and only the display turns off. If I manually go to Power -> Sleep in the Start Menu, it will go to sleep.
Windows 10 kept wanting to restart after it has been shutdown. The computer would have its power indicator turned off for maybe 2 seconds, then you hear the fan whirling and the BIOS screen appears followed by the usual boot process.
I don't know how this would work, but my problem was solved by turning off in my BIOS setup 'Legacy USB Support'. Now if I shutdown Windows 10, it would really shut itself down. No problem so far after maybe 10 or so instances.
My computer won't go into sleep mode automatically. Even when I manually set it to sleep, it will be awake again within 10 minutes or so. I've gone into the advanced power options to make sure that nothing is interrupting it while sleeping and set it so nothing could wake it up. I've checked in the device manager to make sure none of my devices are waking it up.
After it wakes up I'll go into the command prompt and use the "powercfg -lastwake" to see what could be causing it and nothing shows up. There are even times when the computer will turn itself on from being completely turned off.
I just bought a MSI GE62 Apache Pro. I have to install windows on FreeDos. When I look into BIOS menu, boot mode is shown as Legacy. In legacy mode, i can open the 'select boot device' menu but installation could not be done.
So as the user manual suggest, I selected the mode 'UEFI'. However, when i select it and restart my computer, 'select boot device' menu would not appear even if i press the hotkey, instead computer goes into bios menu automatically. I have a MSI CD which is called User Manual Utilities Driver and it has Windows in it.
