Disable Automatic Restarts in Windows 10 Home Anniversary Update

Another alternative - home or pro
If for whatever reason the approach above doesn't work, you can get around automatic reboots by changing your windows update settings so that you only download updates automatically and it requests approval before installing them. Once you approve installation you are at the mercy of when Windows reboots, but you have the ability to otherwise indefinitely delay it.

To change this setting:

Press win+R; type regedit and press enter.
Browse to the following registry entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update
Change the value of that key to a '3' (which configures windows update to download updates automatically but require user confirmation before installing them).



Quote:

Last method description missed the key name one needs to set to '3'. Its AUOptions.
You can do it also from command line:
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

One more note: setting `AUOptions' to 1 disables Automatic Updates completely
