RebootBlocker V2

The new version of the RebootBlocker not only supports adjusting the "active hours" but also disabling tasks that are supposed to trigger a scheduled restart. By default, the RebootBlocker scans scheduled (active) tasks every half hour. If the task contains the terms "reboot" or "shutdown" in the command line, the task is deactivated.

Additionally, the service can log all actions to the Windows Event Viewer.

For more information on the RebootBlocker and the download link , see: details

The two new features can be turned on and off via the installer. Alternatively, an adjustment of these and even additional settings via the registry is possible. However, the service must be restarted afterwards!

You can find the entries in the registry under
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\RebootBlocker

You can customize the following settings:

LoggingEnabled

  • Description: Controls the extended log output to the system event log. When activated, e.g. any update of "active hours" is logged in the application log. If disabled, only critical errors and starting/stopping the service will be logged.
  • Data type: REG_DWORD
  • Unit: Boolean (1: Enabled, 0: Disabled)
  • Default value: 0

 

DisableRebootTasks

  • Description: Controls the automatic deactivation of scheduled tasks.
  • Data type: REG_DWORD
  • Unit: Boolean (1: Enabled, 0: Disabled)
  • Default: 1

 

UpdateIntervalActiveHours

  • Description: Specifies the intervals the active hours are to be checked and, if necessary, adjusted.
  • Data type: REG_DWORD
  • unit: seconds
  • Default: 60
  • Minimum: 10
  • Maximum: 28800 (8 hours)

 

UpdateIntervalRebootTasks

  • Description: Specifies the intervals the scheduled tasks are to be searched in order to disable them if necessary. This check is comparatively slow, especially if many tasks are planned. The interval should therefore not be too short.
  • Data type: REG_DWORD
  • unit: seconds
  • Default: 900 (15 minutes)
  • Minimum: 60
  • Maximum: 43200 (12 hours)

 

 

The following settings are for detecting scheduled tasks that trigger a reboot.

These are comma-separated, regular expressions (PEARL syntax) that are applied to the command line and/or the arguments of the scheduled application. If at least one of the search terms results matches, the task is deactivated

Typically, the scheduled restarts are scheduled by the C:\Windows\System32\MusNotification.exe program with the "reboot" parameter.

 

PatternCommandline

  • Description: Searches for a match in the command line (path + filename of the executable file).
  • Data type: REG_SZ
  • Unit: Regular expressions (comma-separated). If an expression itself contains a comma, enclose it in quotation marks (")
  • Default: Reboot, Shutdown

 

PatternCommandlineForCheckArguments

  • Description: Searches for a match in the command line (path + filename of the executable file). Only if a match is found, the subsequent check on the arguments (see below) is performed. If, as in the standard case, no criterion is specified, this check is omitted and the arguments for ALL planned tasks are examined.
  • Data type: REG_SZ
  • Unit: Regular expressions (comma-separated). If an expression itself contains a comma, enclose it in quotation marks (")
  • Default:
