Disable Windows Update Reboot Nag

Posted by Carson       Trackback

Windows Update is a great tool for keeping your computer up to date.  However, some updates require a reboot and will keep nagging every 10 minutes to reboot your system.  This can be quite annoying, but with a new system policy setting, you can tell the Windows Update interface to not bug you for a real long time, or not at all.

To get rid of the Windows Update Reboot Nag:

1. Go to Start -> Run, then type in gpedit.msc and hit Enter

2. Navigate the Policy Editor interface to: Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update, then double click on “Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations”

3. You can configure how often it will nag you (I re-configured it for 720 minutes, which means I’ll be asked twice on a work day), or completely disable it.
