Updating Windows 10 can be an important part of keeping your computer secure and running smoothly, but the Windows UpdateOrchestrator Reboot Task can be a source of frustration if it unexpectedly restarts your machine. Fortunately, it is possible to disable the Windows UpdateOrchestrator Reboot Task to prevent it from restarting your computer.
The Windows UpdateOrchestrator Reboot Task is a scheduled task that runs on Windows 10 machines to check for and install updates. By default, it is run every day at 3 AM. If the task finds any updates that require a restart, it will automatically restart your machine to finish the installation. This can be inconvenient if you are working on something and do not want your computer to restart without warning.
Fortunately, it is possible to disable the Windows UpdateOrchestrator Reboot Task. To do this, you will need to open the Task Scheduler. The Task Scheduler can be opened by searching for it in the Start menu or by typing “taskschd.msc” into the Run dialog.
Once the Task Scheduler is open, you will need to expand the tree in the left pane until you find the “UpdateOrchestrator” folder. Expand this folder, and then double-click the “Reboot” task. This will open the properties window for the task.
In the properties window, you can disable the task by unchecking the “Enabled” checkbox. Once this is done, click “OK” to save your changes and close the window. The Reboot task will no longer run and the computer will not be restarted without warning.
If you ever decide you want to re-enable the task, you can do so by repeating the steps above and checking the “Enabled” checkbox.
Disabling the Windows UpdateOrchestrator Reboot Task can be a useful way to prevent your computer from unexpectedly restarting due to updates. By following the steps outlined above, you can easily disable the task and prevent it from restarting your computer without warning.
