I just followed your steps and wanted to say thank you, as this post seems to be timeless. I wasn't interested in shutting down the updates altogether, but the forced restart is AGGRESSIVELY obnoxious (and never ever comes at a convenient time like the middle of the night while I'm not using my device. Almost seems like they wait for me to get started on something before *bloop* update popup. Ugh, I digress). Anyway, following your register instructions to the tee was pretty straightforward and my computer did not brick :) Thank you again!

You cannot cancel a restart or shutdown using the Shutdown Event Tracker Windows interface. It is only possible to perform this task from the command line. To cancel or abort system shutdown or restart, open Command Prompt, type shutdown /a within the time-out period and hit Enter. It would instead be easier to create a desktop or keyboard shortcut for it. The /a argument will abort a system shutdown and can only be used during the time-out period.

If you’re using Windows 8 Professional or (Ultimate), then you have access to Local Group Policy Editor, which is the easier (albeit longer) route for achieving this.
