A lot of people didn't know what they were getting themselves in to with the free Windows 10 upgrade. But if you paid attention none of this would be surprising. As many have stated there are ways around it.

It's annoying and unfortunate that you've had a bad experience, but I wouldn't consider this Microsoft's fault.


Of course it's Microsoft's fault. They made this the behaviour of Windows, instead of always defaulting to asking before resetting. Tell me how it could *ever* be a good idea for M$ to force Windows to reset without asking the user? It would be bad enough in a games console, where all the user would lose at most would be some in-game progress, but Windows is used for all sorts of creative work (programming, video editing, writing a novel, making music, spreadsheets, etc) and so potential losses due to an unauthorised (by the user) reset are much, much more important, and can even cost the user money due to lost work.

And saying that it's a well known problem with a commonly known work around is not an excuse, the problem should not exist at all. Windows has been around for more than thirty years, it's the biggest selling program of all time, and has gone through many revisions, and by now there should be *no* stupid flaws, it should be about as well designed and thought-through as anything can be in this world.


I'm going to have to agree - generally I'm a proponent of Windows 10, but there's really no excusing Windows restarting while an application is running. "But...there's a workaround" doesn't excuse a glaring design flaw. You're telling me Microsoft's programmers couldn't figure out a way to delay an update if the CPU is seeing high usage/there's an application running in the foreground? Ludicrous.

And they've secretly done it two more times after that.
1) Anniversary Update
2) Creators Update.

Next is Fall Creators Update.
You might as well call it Windows 13.

A solution for a hammer hitting your thumb periodically is not to hit your thumb intentionally sometimes, nor is it to tell the hammer that it can hit your thumb every friday between the hours of six and eight pee ehm.
The only solutions at this time are to disable Windows Update entirely, or to use a different OS.

Or you learn how to use a f***ing hammer and don't f***ing hit yourself. Holy s*** you people are dumb.

Right, disabling the update service entirely.

Disabling == getting rid of the hammer.
