Windows 10 Fake Restart

By | October 25, 2019

I recently witnessed a Windows 10 PC restart, only to find that WMIC was reporting it had not been rebooted in a month. This false restart was causing the users VPN to fail. After multiple “Restarts” that appeared to complete, I finally ran restart /f /r /t3 from command. This forced restart took longer, updated the last bootup time in wmic and resolved the VPN issue.
