Why does windows explorer keep updating itself resons dating a younger man sucks
Once the Reboot task is disabled, Windows 10 will never reboot itself automatically after updates have been installed.
Some users report that Windows 10 is able to re-enable this task automatically.
Windows Defender is hard to disable in this OS, Windows Update gives you no control over choosing and downloading updates and there's no way to stop automatic reboots either.
This setting is not directly accessible from “control panel” but if you click any of the group, you can find it at the left panel.
In the screenshot below, I randomly picked the “Appearance and Personalization” group.
Later, if you change your mind, you can delete the Reboot folder and rename the file from to Reboot.
Alternatively, you can use a small app Shutdown Guard which prevents the operating system from accidental reboots.
