I'm not sure how long this has been going on, probably at least a year or so. Periodically Windows 10 will attempt to update and fails, sometimes it makes it so far that it tries to boot the upgrade and crashes then it goes about restoring the previous version. Is there any way to stop it from trying?

Perhaps the bigger issue is why any windows update fails on your machine. Maybe get that checked out.

First thought: Go to settings, type in "automatic update" in the search box and see if you can turn it off.

Second thought: if that doesn't help, send feedback, and see if you can get help from them.

hmmm, not sure what to think about this. Windows has been trying and failing to update many times over the last two years, I came here asked about it and the very next time it tried it worked.
Thanks, I guess, Big Brother.
