How can I disable the auto restart (following updates) for Windows 7 Home Premium (without messing around w / the register)?

Hello.  About all of the weeks I have my upload computer files from one day to the next.  It's a 17-hour process, and I don't want the computer off or restarted during this process.  Murphy's law usually results in an update windows & restart related happening whenever I put my computer to download said.  First of all, it is deeply annoying that windows would reboot my computer without asking me (Yes, I realize he asks you, and if you are away for an extended period, he just goes ahead and does it... but really, what the $#! % is the point of asking you if she goes ahead and that anyway when you get him just enough early?)  Wow!  Incredibly retarted the Windows for this.)  But anyway, how can I disable this for Win7 Home Premium?  (As if in the first place is not quite annoying, making it virtually impossible to figure out how to turn it off is like adding insult to injury).  Please NOTE, I've seen some other forum post responses on this site that is: (1) link to an information page on the group policies for system administrators, but nowhere does really explain where and how to access these policies and change them!  (2) has a process that begins with 'gpedit.msc' running, but when I started > box to search for this file, there is no result.  (3) the hacking the registry (seriously?  Please, don't.)  SO, please tell me how to disable the auto restart, step by step, without messing with the registry, for WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM.  Ideally, I'd like to be able to potentially re - activate cela in the future and/or switches back as my usage dictates.  And for the record, it's nut that's not a simple option toggle any, as when my computer or monitor sleeps...  Thank you!!


Thank you.  I'll do it and change my Windows Update settings.  BUT, FYI, in an act even more incredible, the same night I posted my question here, my computer was said upload, and I was still in place at 03:00 (when Windows is set to d/l and install updates).  I went to the kitchen for a bit and returned to my computer to find a countdown - he downloaded updates and "will re-start in 7 minutes" or so and counting down... I said "AH HA!"  I caught you! "I clicked the button of REPORTER and went to bed smiling that I myself had saved wasting many hours of work.  But when I woke up the next morning... HE HAD DONE IT AGAIN!  This means that it is: (1) downloaded another "critic" (cough) update later in the evening, which seems likely because it took to do this at 03:00 and had already done so... or (2) the REPORTER button defers only during a certain period of time (maybe an hour, or even less, by the look of it) and then do it again anyway.

This is ridiculous.  As it is not ridiculous to called 9 10 patches 'critical', so critical that an urgent restarting your computer is necessary EVEN IF HE is BUSY WORKING, the substitution of the computer user asks to postpone and reboot anyway is absolutely unacceptable.  How the manufacturers of Windows might think this makes sense, let alone was a good idea?  Reporter should make the computer restarts DO NOT until * I * say he is allowed to do.

In this case, finish the work of 17 hours, that the computer was in the Middle has been MUCH more critical that whatever is downloaded updated.  NO doubt about it.  I know.  Apparently, my operating system is not smart enough to know.  So to take it upon himself to replace my reporter application is crazy.  And in addition, the operating system MUST be smart enough to understand this - it's really not that difficult - if the computer is a lot of work, something intense, a download that is not finished, a sort of bar of ANY progress on ANY application which is not 100% yet, etc., it should be smart enough to WAIT to reboot anyway.

Thanks again once, change Windows Update settings so it will download updates but let me choose to install them, since this operating system is so poorly thought.

  • It's going to be an update for Windows Vista (home premium 32 bit is what I'm running) which will trigger the max score until Windows 7 is going to?

    I have these sides:

    CPU - 4.7

    RAM - 4.8

    Graphics - 5.9

    G. graphics - 5.9

    Disk hard - 5.7

    What I want is to be able to tell how my graphics card is really because it's maxed out at 5.9. I know that if I was running 7 it would be 6. _ or maybe even 7. _.  So is there an update I can download for vista which will allow my ratings reach the coast on windows 7?

    Not - or at least not likely (but the drivers, firmware or software updates regular for the device using Vista may helo).  The ratings are based on this device using the disks appropriate for your version of Vista device and it.  How it works in Windows 7 (if it works in Windows 7) is from THESE drivers and the operating system (and other components on this computer).  Even if you can and did move to Windows 7, there is no guarantee that you would get all the numbers even better less significantly better numbers - although it is certainly possible amd I know that it has been the case for others who have updated.

    The best place to check the updates of device driveer (or firmware or software related, if applicable) is either the manufacturer of the computer if it came with the computer or the manufacturer of the device.  Their websites should have the links and downloads and they will be the most recent and the best available (better that what you could get through Microsoft - in fact, I suggest strongly you never use the drivers supplied by Microsoft and always bring manufacturers directly. What is the most recent will be available to give you the best possible results (before the upgrade of the unit such as adding more RAM tp the video card if your system and it can accept more RAM).

    You cannot use Windows 7 device on a Vista machine drivers.  Not only which won't work (if it allows even the facility) and will not improve ratings but that could seriously damage your system or device.  Please take my word on it and don't even consider that it.

    Just check out the manufacturers for updates of device (drivers, firmware and/or software) and keep your system up-to-date with the latest available, and that's the best you can do.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • How can I get a Dell J740 to work with Windows Vista Home Premium?

  • How to activate Win 7 Home Premium SP1 if I have a product key for Win 7 Home Premium without SP1

    I bought the Dell with pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium computer. I recently had a problem with the firewall system and found that the only solution is to reinstall Windows. I downloaded .iso with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 because my current version has been already upgraded to SP1. After that I installed it, it asked me to enter the product key.

What can I do about it now? Can I get a product key for Win 7 Home Premium SP1 if I have Win 7 Home Premium? Service pack 1 is free anyway...

    If you have downloaded a Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 integrated, you should be able to use the product key located on the COA sticker in the battery compartment.

    Flash player is and not as you can see at

    Flash player is used for good Flash videos like Youtube and Flash games in Shockwave player is little used compared to Flash, for things such as games and online learning tools.

  • How can I disable the mouse pad when you use a mouse plug-and-play?

    How can I disable the mouse pad when you use a mouse plug-and-play? I tried to disable the driver, and nothing works.


    Check with support of the manufacturer system, documentation online or forums that there is probably
    Shortcut keys that enable and disable the touchpad functions.

    Parameters for TouchPad located in the control panel - mouse (there may be several tabs with TouchPad entered)
    and some come with a utility that loads in the Notification area next to the clock in the bottom right.


    If necessary: (make sure that you have restarted at least once, if the above did not work)

    Panel of configuration manager devices - mouse and pointing devices - Double click on the touchpad - the driver tab-
    Click on update driver (it comes may not do anything like MS is far behind the drivers of certification), now right CLICK
    on the TouchPad and UNINSTALL.

    Then go to the USB and UNINSTALL ALL controllers except the category itself (all in). RESET

    This will refresh the driver for the TouchPad and battery USB. This does not prevent the touchpad from working.

    The similar procedure on XP, Windows 7 and Vista is the same, except that we need to clear the specific device if present.

    Then go to the system manufacturer's website and get the latest touchpad drivers.

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put it-click on - RUN AS ADMIN.

    I hope this helps.
