I did not change any settings, this started happening randomly today.  Now I can't run the app, when I launch it just shuts down.

I re-downloaded to another directory, same thing.  Ideas?  How to I back out of this?

Please delete the option in the registry by removing: HKLM\Software\Patch My PC

You enabled the shutdown after installing updates option most likely



Hello - this is happening to me/a new Windows 10 Home computer and each time I try to run Patchmypc - it instantly state:  "You're about to be signed out.  Windows will shutdown in less than a minute"  I cannot locate via regedit:  HKLM\Software\Patch My PC - grateful if you could be more specific why this is happening and how to avoid - until then I cannot recommend your software to Windows10 users.

Thanks and best wishes

This would happen if the following option is enabled

We are going to remove this option in the next update in the coming weeks. It seems to be causing more problems than value.
