How to Stop Forced Reboot of Windows Vista After Software Updates

NoForcedReboot Sometimes it would be very frustrating to see our machine rebooted due to software updates. There would be instances when we would have started a long process to start and would have aborted abruptly due to the software updates from the Vista. I found a nice article from How To Geek where he has explained the above process to disable Vista from forcibly rebooting the machine. All we need to do is this:

Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box or run dialog, and navigate down to the following key, creating new keys if they don't exist.


Create a new 32-bit DWORD value named NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers and give it a value of 1 to prevent automatic reboot while users are logged on. Delete the value to put things back to the way they were.
