Updates reboot computer without asking permission
I fail to receive a message that I need to reboot for updates to take effect.
I may be in the middle of important work and the computer just starts
rebooting sometimes causing me to lose my work. My computer at work tells me
updates have been downloaded and asking if I want to reboot now or reboot
later. How can I change my home computer to ask this first before the reboot
process begins without warning?

Re: Updates reboot computer without asking permission
Windows version?

Which updates were installed?

Which of the three (3) Automatic Updates settings have you selected?

What does Event Viewer | System log have to say about a prompt to reboot
after installing these updates?
