How to disable or enable automatic restart


By default Windows 10 is configured to restart automatically on system failure.

If a critical system error occurs during the operating system startup, Windows 10 restarts automatically. It complicates the systems failure analysis. And if the startup fails because of the overclocked hardware, the operating system might fail to start until you turn off the overclocking settings in BIOS setup.

If you want to disable the automatic restart do the following.

1. Open the System Properties.

2. On the Advanced tab, under the Startup and Recovery section click on the Settings button.

3. Under the System failure section clear the Automatically restart checkbox.
