How to Stop Windows Automatic Updates from Restarting Your Computer

Ever get tired of seeing this screen?

It's easier to get rid of than you think. Just pull up Windows Command Prompt (usually Start > Run > and type "cmd"). Just type this following line to stop the annoying screen from popping up:
net stop "automatic updates"

Voila! You are finished.

Does this only stop the "restart your computer to finish" notification or does it stop automatic updates?

I assume it's the notification, in wich case this be a great tip!

Lee said...

Well, it does actually stop the automatic update service itself, but only until you either restart it during your current session, or reboot, which is what it wants you to do anyway.
