Ok, after coming in to work today to find my computer rebooted without saving jack squat, I immediately disabled “Restart” after installing Windows Updates:

So here is how you can disable the restart & reminder of Windows Automatic Updates:

  1. Click Start -> Run
  2. Enter “gpedit.msc”
  3. Go to Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update
  4. Double-click on “Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations”
  5. Disable it!
  6. Double-click on “No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Update installation”
  7. Enable it!
  8. Reboot the computer
