Doesn't look like it's configured to automatically restart.

Where do I find that?

In "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\System and Security" I see Windows Update, when I choose to run it as Administrator I get:




Settings\updates if memory serves me

Did you try this (to disable updates)?
If you do that you won't get ANY updates including security fixes.

One of the computers in my office seems to be restarting itself on an automatic schedule every night. It drives me crazy, because I often try to use teamviewer, either when I need to access something that is only accessible on a desktop windows computer, or when I need information stored on that computer. The problem is that the hard drive is encrypted with bitlocker, and nothing will start until the password is entered on the computer.

I have searched all kinds of settings to make sure the computer never shuts down on its own, but can't seem to find what it is that causes it (I am guessing some kind of automatic application of Windows updates - but I've searched for that too, and thought I disabled it).

How can I figure out what is causing the restart, and permanently disable it from automatically restarting?
It's probably windows update. You can check in settings if any updates are pending/failed.

iirc you have to make sure you’re disconnected from the phone providers box outside your house.
+1 otherwise you will have 2 signals

Would connecting a obi200 directly to a phone jack in a house make all phone jacks connect to the obi?

Would like advice and comments on renting a car at denver airport.
Have been reading reviews- mostly horrible- about the terrible service received at most of the car rental agencies at denver airport.  I have a current rental with budget but the reviews Re awful Has anyone rented with budget- what was your experience?
I rented from Enterprise/national last summer and it was fine
