Hi, thank you for your time.

Windows 10...wasn't happy with forced install from the beginning. Few months later it started prompting me with an update ready to be installed to my machine. I kept delaying it. Of course, it didn't go away duh. I do tend to procrastinate so my fault for not making changes to settings for updates or done the update right away. Anyway. 

Today I decided to click that "restart now" button. Computer went on as if it will restart with update but throw a message of an error and kept at 0% for an hour. I turned it off and on. Though it might be gone now, but now it sends the message "restart now" or "wait an hour" every hour.

Tried again, its the same, error and 0% progress. 


So I went and wanted to try this solution :



But when I tried to download the script (for win 10), OneDrive link is empty.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
