Windows update restart popup

I was just out a second, and while my computer had a little idle time Microsoft updated my computer with some patch. I usually don’t mind that updates are installed automatically, but when it forces me to reboot afterwards it gets really annoying. This led me to google the following phrase:

“kill windows update” (At the time I really meant it)

I obviously isn’t the only one out there that gets annoyed of this freaking nagging pop up. So here is the solution kindly supplied by nzj (link)

Run the following in a command window:

sc stop wuauserv

This stops the Windows update service. After it has stopped you can restart it again with:

sc start wuauserv

And then it will start nagging you again.
