Windows Update restart Notification keeps coming

I have a user who keeps having notified it needs to restart his PC because updates have been applied and they need of a reboot.  The only thing that is good when the window comes up to him "restart now" is grayed out and only "restart later" is clickable.  then he clicks that and the small icons of automatic update remains at the bottom of the clock.

I made sure that the user has restarted and there.  But the guest always to return.  We have automatically updated authorized through the policy and I can not change these settings.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Rich

  • Windows 7 64 - Bit Windows Update, restart error

    Hello!

    I have recently bought a new laptop and immediately started my Windows Update. At some point to complete the installation, I was required to restart, I did. When Windows is booting (before it shows me the logon screen), there was a message that says something like 'install updates x x (somefilename)', so I let him

    But when I come back a little later, I saw a message that says that the updates have failed and it is changes in recovery, after which it restarts again. When I finally get into Windows, I checked update history and saw that there were only 2 updates failed (others have done), so I manually downloaded those updates that has installed then fine.

    My question would be, so my laptop updated correctly? Should I believe what is said in the history of the update or should I study why my updates failed, and what were the changes came back?

    I am fairly new to Windows 7, after using Windows XP for quite a long time. Any help is appreciated

    If Windows Update (in Control Panel) now says that no other updates are required, everything is OK.

  • Stop Windows Update restart without my permission

    On my laptop and PC (both vista), whenever he does occasionally after the download and installation, windows update, it automatically restarts without warning or permission.  How can I do seek approval to restart.

    I don't mind my pc auto update, but I don't want to reboot without warning me, because it stops while I am in the middle of a program and I lose my job.

    The next option in settings should automatically download but if you need to install.  Y at - it an option to download, install, but does not restart until I'm ready?

  • Help please - Windows update - restart issues (and upgrade to Windows 10 questions?)

    Hello

    I wanted to switch to Windows 10 but got stuck on the "start download" page, as have other users.

    Looking through the other questions on this site, I have seen that Windows update may need to complete before you start with Windows 10.

    I had not run windows update for a long time I thought that would mean Windows 10 would install and I wasn't ready for this, but now I am.

    Then I ran windows update and more than 150 updates have been installed.

    However, he now says:

    "Restart your computer to install important updates

    Windows cannot update services and important files while the system uses them.  Save... "

    I rebooted, shut down, rebooted several times, but this message continues to appear in the Windows Update window.

    Still, the update of Windows 10 stuck initially download.

    I ran disk cleanup in safe mode, as well as normal and tried to restart, but it did not help.  I tried the troubleshooting windows update option, but this did not help.

    I used two tools, the Microsoft FixIt who did not help and a WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab file which allows to find the two errors and saying: he fixed them, but this still does not work, IE always ask me to restart and Windows 10 gets stuck to download from.

    The two problems it finds are listed as:

    "Windows Update error 0 x 80070005(2016-05-30-T-08_49_44P)" and is listed as fixed

    "Problems install the latest updates" and is considered to be fixed.

    I am at my wits end and would be really grateful for the help.

    If this becomes technical, please help me in using a step by step method or referring to one for me.

    I have a laptop of Toshiba Windows 7 64-bit.

    Thanks in advance

    EDIT: I ran the above diagnostic tool and the error was fixed progresses over time, that is to say it is correct to say 09:03 now...  Also, to revise accordingly the so-called updates installed, many of them, but not all, have the status of a failed.

    What to do about all this?

    I suggest you to download the tool for creating Windows Media 10 ISO and make a place in upgrade.

  • How can I stop Windows Update restart my computer in Windows 7 Home Premium?

    While I don't mind Windows Update automatically updates from my PC, view it force a reboot when I am connected causes a problem.  I currently have WU configured to perform updates to 03:00, and when it's over, if to do a reboot, I'm not here to tell him to wait.  I'd rather leave time settings as they are and simply disable the auto restart, opting instead for WU to let me know that he needs to restart the PC.  I found ways to do this on XP and Vista, including registry changes and changes to group policy.  However, the registry is obviously a little different, so the keys do not exist compared to what I found, and since I am running Home Premium I have no gpedit.

    Where in the registry can I make a change so I do not data lost when WU resets my computer at night?

    Another way to do it without hacking the registry, which can be scary for some users), is to follow the instructions on the following Web site:

    http://weblogs.ASP.NET/jgalloway/archive/2006/02/11/438009.aspx

    I stuck in the main rooms, in the cases where the link is dead (but not nice photo well):

    1. Click Start-> Run (or Vista and 7 just press the windows ORB)
    2. Type: gpedit.msc
    3. Expand Local computer policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update
    4. Double-click on "to demand no auto restart for automatic updates installations".
    5. Select 'Active', then OK. Close the group policy configuration program.

    This should stop it autorestarting.
