    Stop Windows From Restarting

    Windows has just done an auto update. Now it wants to restart every 5 minutes. Apparently its an emergency and it wont allow any delays unless I constantly tell it not to. Can I stop this? Its annoying.

    Or you can get the relevant updates and hotfixes manually from microsoft.com, and stuff the silly update tool.
