Updating takes under a minuteno res

Windows will send a close message to Notepad and ask if you want to save or cancel.Cancel should stop the shutdown, but if the signal went to other apps first, they might close before you cancel.admin command prompt, /a followed by running and disabling the Windows Update service.

Minutes may be kept by any individual in attendance at a meeting and are usually distributed to all members of the unit represented at the meeting.It appears that the answer to this question is evolving as Microsoft keeps making it harder to put off restarting.This answer was gleaned from many of the other answers and comments to this question.As others have noted, I have just attempted this; it tells me "The Windows Update service could not be stopped." This is at an Admin command prompt.Guess there's just no chance of avoiding MS's super important scheduled restart... Windows 8 is restarting, I probably only have like 13 minutes by now, but I can't have my computer shut off, doing like 20 different things on a couple of different VM's. I found these instructions, but I'm not sure if it will stop the process if it is already taking place.

In the link mentioned above, I can disable auto update through group policy or through registry editor. it restarted, and was back up and running in like 20 seconds. Note to everyone else, changing group policy and force updating group policy doesn't work. Next time (if it happens) try opening notepad and typing something in.

Prevent imminent reboot: Note that resetting the countdown stop by locking the computer might be disabled if update 2835627 was installed (by either yourself or your friendly administrator). To prevent auto rebooting while logged on, please see for a registry hack. This is, beyond all possible debate, the #1 most infuriating "feature" I have EVER encountered on any device ever.

Be aware though that auto rebooting was not designed to give you a hard time, but rather because it is very necessary from a security point of view. It's actually designed to just completely f**king destroy everything you're working on, but not until it taunts you with a short timer, with absolutely no way to stop it.

They go even further and actively revert your decisions for you.

I found a guide to disable automatic reboots and it involves revoking write permissions from SYSTEM for a certain key file.

Oh, and it will often do this randomly when I walk away from my computer for a minute or two; can't tell you how many times I've stood up for 'stand up' in our agile development team, only to peak back at my computer a minute later and see that it has randomly restarted itself. to stop a shutdown timer, but this doesn't work in this instance.
