Re: "Windows 10 has done very well at home"
re: " enforced patch"
I might have finally cracked it and gotten Win 10 Pro to advise me of updates only (instead of auto updating/auto rebooting outside of the stingy 12-hour 'core hours' MS grace me).
Open the Policy Editor (Start+R, gpedit.msc)
Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update.
The settings I've modified are:
"Configure Automatic Updates" -> Enabled, and change to "3 - Automatic download and notify for install"
"No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations" -> Enabled
There could be more to tinker with,but so far, so successful! Today I got a "You've got some updates" message instead of it installing and rebooting off its own back.
MS should take note, this shouldn't be the way!
