Re: Computer advise.

You can prevent W10 Home from suddenly deciding to launch an update while you're busy. Tell it to update "outside active hours" and the choose inactive period to be overnight.

Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Change Active Hours
Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Update Notifications > On

I have mine set to active between 8am and 9pm. If an update is ready to install you'll get a notification that it's ready to install, you can then opt to restart immediately or during inactive hours.
