I run server 2008 r2 as my desktop OS.
I am trying to disable the annoying restart prompt that comes up after installing updates. The most I can postpone it to is 4 hours.
I have tried disabling “Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations” and enabling “No auto-restart [...] for scheduled Automatic Update installation” in Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update in gpedit.msc, to no avail.
I have looked at various guides, and nothing seems to work.
I do want automatic updates, and I have it set to notify me immediately, and allow me to choose what to download and install. I just don't want this nagger screen to keep coming up, for various reasons.
Is there a fix?
Please don't respond with a lecture about why I should restart automatically, as your assumptions may not be valid.
