Thank you.  And, I have saved this info to another email program so I can find it.

So made sure that my windows 10 updates were turned off but today, during lunch, I go back to my laptop and discovered it had rebooted itself due to a windows update!  I lost some work and rechecked but sure enough updates were turned off!  I did some research and found this comment from someone:

Turning off Windows updates works only temporarily, as Windows Update has a watchguard that can restart update service."

So how do I know if updates are truly disabled even though the screen says that it is?

The good thing is that whatever it did it did not mess with Outlook Express as I am still able to open the program.  But I am worried about the next time.

thanks for the info.
Actually windows update is a service. So if you open services (type services.msc on search bar) , you will see a service called "windows update".
You can disable that service to prevent updates and check if it is still disabled regularly.

yes it said disabled which is why I am confused.  When I checked to see what it downloaded the history was blank yet the laptop did reboot.
