Stop that nagging reboot message after windows update

Don’t you hate the constant reminder to reboot windows after an update? Yes, you need to apply the changes, but if you are working on your PC, you don’t want to reboot until later. What I don’t like is that if you’re PC is unattended, your PC will just reboot.

Well, here’s a fix:

Type “gpedit.msc” into the run box, go to Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Windows Update and enable the options “No auto-restart for logged in users…” and “Re-Prompt for restart with scheduled installations”.

Pretty easy all up, and you have some flexibility in how you want to configure those options. Note: you may have to run it as administrator if using Vista.
