Are you fed up of restarting or shutting down you computer and it then comes up with the dreaded “Configuring Windows Updates – Do Not Power Off Your Computer”?
Well, there is a quick fix to get around this and allow your machine to shut down immediately.
All you have to do is to open a command prompt (Windows 10 – right click Start Button and from the menu click “Command Prompt”) and type in the following command:
shutdown /s /t/ 0
This will now immediately shut down your machine and avoid the Windows Updates message!
