Overlooking the unsaved thingie, it seems to me that your biggest mistake was in the assumption that you had stopped Microsoft's (self healing) ability to update. Silly you. Microsoft works under the (correct) assumption that many/most people are too stupid/lazy/busy to do updates on their own. Then they blame Msft for any malware. So,they do the the updates automagically. I think the only ways to stop them is: 1. use an Update Server to control[ 2. Turn off the network card (hard to do if you are doing cloud stuff) or 3. use a firewall that blocks by application (mine does, they are expensive). I run W10 in a virtual machine, so I can disable the NIC when I don't want to risk anything interrupting me. Once, I created rules in the firewall to block updates. I think I wound up with about 8 or 10 IP address ranges!
Leave the machine without backing up my work? Get caught once and I probably won't do it again.

If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
