Windows 10 restarting despite settings to the contrary!

Hi Everyone,

I have a Windows 10 computer that I do not want restarting "on it's own behalf".

Towards this end I have disabled automatic restarts after Windows updates by following this tutorial - Prevent Windows From Restarting Your PC After Windows Updates.

Furthermore the computer that I am working on was originally a Domain Member, and I thought that the Server may have been signalling the computer to shutdown. I therefore removed the computer from the Domain and added it to it's own Workgroup.

However despite all of the above the computer is still restarting on it's own behalf. Investigations of the Event Viewer reveal that the computer shut down 'skillfully', and that the last shutdown was for the purpose of Reconfiguration.

Historically after setting the appropriate (afore mentioned) group policy settings in Windows 7 I could rely upon a computer to stay on almost indefinitely (with the exception of hardware failures, power outages, etc.) however this Windows 10 computer is restarting regardless!

If anybody can offer any suggestions they will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

For now, can you cut it's power off after shutdown?
Any chance it's getting too hot? Computers have a fail safe shutdown for this.
Unless you have the old Admins PW, yes he'll have to.
