Windows 10 keeps rebooting

Received another auto update from Windows 10 on my M800 last night.  Woke up this morning to see all my open projects were all closed and I had received another auto update from MS.  Grrrrrrrr!

 

In any event, since then, the computer keeps rebooting  whenever I stop working for more than 15 minutes.  It's happened three times today.  When I check Windows updates, only last nights update shows up. Any ideas?  This is getting annoying.

 

Thanks.

 

Specs:

 

M800 SFF
Model 10FYCTO1WW
BIOS Version/Date LENOVO FWKT5AA, 9/23/2016
OS Windows 10 Home

Re: Windows 10 keeps rebooting

Go into settings,update & security,windows update, look for active hours on the right side of screen. Anytime outside of ACTIVE HOURS, windows will reboot your machine to install updates.

 

Updates are normally the 2nd tuesday of the month (black tuesday)  and the end of the month(special updates). Auto install on my machine is 2 days later,with ERRR also.

 

It sounds like windows update is trying to install an update over and over(???).  

 

Sadly the active hours change wont change.  Researching.

Checking the settings, my active hours are 6 am to 6 pm.  So far, its rebooted before and during my active hours, so I don't know what to think.

 

Today, it hasn't happened at all????

It wont schedule a reboot unless an update is needed, after black tuesday or end of month.

You may be right.  Two days in a row without a reboot, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Have you had the system for long?   Do you know if it updated the system to 1607, and fully updated

Re: Windows 10 keeps rebooting

Hmm. How do I check that? I'm not sure?

 

I've only had the system about a month, and after four or five reboots, the problem finally stopped happening.
