Avoid Auto Installation Of Updates While Shutting Down The PC

On a notebook it is better to decide yourself when windows should install the available updates. The best time would be when it is back to the power supply
from the electric socket. You should therefore change the standard option , so that you do not have to wait for the installation to be done when you shut down your computer.

This can be done by creating an additional registry entry . For that, open ‘Start – Run ‘ , enter ‘regedit‘ and is enough to just type the command in the search field of start menu and press enter . In the editor, nevigate to the key ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU‘. If the last tab keys are still not available , creat these with ‘Edit-New-Key’. Then click in right ‘New-DWORD value‘. Enter the name ‘NoAU AsDefaultShutdownOption‘ and then press ( Enter).

To edit , double- click on the new entry . Changes the ‘Value’in ‘1’ and confirm it with ‘ok’ . This thus prevents Windows from automatically selecting the option ‘Install Updates And Shutdown‘.Set the value ‘0’ , if you wish to activate this option again later.
