qBittorent and a pending Win10 update

Post by jwb » Sun Nov 17, 2019 10:29 am

The "Start / Power" menu on my Win10 says "Update and shut down" because the latest Windows Update has downloaded and awaits installation.

If I select "On Downloads Done / Shutdown System" in qBittorrent, what will happen when the downloads finish: Windows Update will install OR Windows Update gets bypassed? I don't want to test it because this Windows Update causes a restart loop on my computer, which I've already handled once...don't want to handle again. Presently, I have my power button (hardware) set to shutdown, which bypasses the Windows Update installation.

Well, I inadvertently tested by myself anyway. Very tired at the end of the day, without thinking, I started a torrent and set "On Downloads Done / Shutdown System" in qBittorrent.

In the morning, when I started the computer, Windows Update ran. Hit the blue screen of death again, and I had to back out the update. >:(

NOT qbittorrent's fault.
