OS shutdown is stupid RRS feed

  • Question

  • Each time I shutdown my computer (windows 2008 R2), windows will install windows update which takes long time. It is really very very bad and stupid, I noticed that windows XPhas option like shutdown PC without installing windows update. I post a topic here, just complaining about this bad user experience, it really made me crazy many times.

  • Before you shut down (or if Windows is nagging you to restart to complete updates)... Start -> Run -> "cmd" enter -> "net stop wuauserv" ... stops the update services, at least temporarily
