force stop restart

Hello all,

When we push updates, users are not getting option to suppress the reboot. Is there any command line in powershell or cmd to force stop the restart.

We dont want to use GPO, We  want give user a command to do that.

Windows 10 will update when it shuts down (assuming updates are pending). There is no way around that and it is not a good idea because other products may need to update and cannot if waiting for Windows.

Use active hours and allow machines to run overnight occasionally to install Updates. That lessens the issues in between times.
Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

The easiest way is to use the GPO which defines "no auto reboot with logged on users" found at Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.
After that, the only way for windows update to restart a machine without approval of the end user is if wsus is in use and the admin has configured deadlines on updates, which override anything.

Thanks for the comments, So there is no command to suppress  reboot. We cannot use GPO.
The set the registry key:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Open in new window

thanks we tried it, But we are looking for command line, we dont want our user to change registries also they do not have admin rights.
Users cannot use commands to change that. That would need admins. You'll not succeed unless you use a startup script or GPO.
