Over the course of the last few months Windows attempts to run updates during the middle of the afternoon when settings show that it should not do so between 4AM and 10PM.
This began happening in either January or December of last year.
I have checked all available settings multiple times and cannot figure out why it keeps insisting that I reboot in the middle of the afternoon instead of running the download overnight and running the reboot when I get in in the morning.
What am I missing?
If you are having issues with scheduling a Windows 11 update, here are a few things you can try:
net stop wuauserv net stop cryptSvc net stop bits net stop msiserver ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old net start wuauserv net start cryptSvc net start bits net start msiserver ``` After running these commands, restart your computer and try checking for updates again.
