    Default Disable Automatic Windows Restart with Auto Reboot Remover - Any Comments, PLEASE?



    Windows only: Selectively enable or disable the automatic system restart that's applied after certain Windows Updates with freeware application Auto Reboot Remover. While I'm sure Microsoft had good intentions when they pushed out the automatic update reboot, good intentions don't make you feel any better when you return to your computer after grabbing a bite to find out Windows decided to reboot and naturally did not happen to save the important files you were working on before it did so. We've covered this idea in more roundabout ways in the past, but Auto Reboot Remover is the quickest, easiest way to disable the auto reboot process. Auto Reboot Remover is freeware, Windows only. The download page is kind of a pain, but you'll find the right link about halfway down the freeware section.

    Launch gpedit.msc

    Go to Computer Configuration "Administrative Templates" "Windows Components" "Windows Update".

    Or...
    You can also schedule the updates so that you don't have to worry about this. If you do this while you sleep, then everything is fine. You can go to the "Control Panel" "Automatic Updates" Select the second option "Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them" or the third "Notify me but don't automatically download or install the updates" button.

    I am sure for some the free software will work. But You need to learn where these areas are anyway, so I chose to post the info. Please don't be offended by my post. A few will want the software. But I teach the long way, so that computer users wont be hesitant in a crisis about fixing things themselves. They need too learn the nuts and bolts of their computers these days.

    That was for Windows XP..

    Here is a Link to do something Simular in Windows Vista/Windows 7.. Temporarily Disable Windows Update's Automatic Reboot in Vistahttp://www.howtogeek.com/howto/uncat...boot-in-vista/So you're in the middle of doing something important on your computer when the "Restart your computer to finish installing important updates" dialog comes up, and asks you to restart your computer.
