Windows microsoft 7 turn automatic updating off
While not recommended, the same result can be achieved through Registry.
Under HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Update\AU, set Au Options to 4, set the install time with Scheduled Install Time, enable Always Auto Reboot At Scheduled Time and specify the delay in minutes through Always Auto Reboot At Scheduled Time Minutes.
You can use Group Policy settings, mobile device management (MDM) or Registry (not recommended) to configure when devices will restart after a Windows 10 update is installed.
You can schedule update installation and set policies for restart, configure active hours for when restarts will not occur, or you can do both.
In Windows 10, version 1703, we have added settings to control restart notifications for users.
Administrators can use multiple ways to set active hours for managed devices: To configure active hours using Group Policy, go to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update and open the Turn off auto-restart for updates during active hours policy setting.
If the restart does not succeed after 7 days (by default), the user will see a notification that restart is required.
You can use the Specify deadline before auto-restart for update installation policy to change the delay from 7 days to a number of days between 2 and 14.
This method is not recommended, and should only be used when neither Group Policy or MDM are available.
Any settings configured through Registry may conflict with any existing configuration that uses any of the methods mentioned above.
Similar to Group Policy, Always Auto Reboot At Scheduled Time Minutes sets the timer to warn a signed-in user that a restart is going to occur.
