Annoying Windows Update Restart

Good Evening, My PC in the office just went through some updates. And as usual, Windows require restart in order to perform the updates. Usually Windows will pop-up a reminder to “Remind” user of the restart. This is an annoying reminder. We know and we will restart the PC eventually (sigh… Windows). They require restart in almost all updates. My Ubuntu PC never ask me to restart. I love my Ubuntu (Use it in both Office and Home)

The Dreaded Reminder

Well, every now and then this bloody reminder pops up to gain my attention. Which I dismiss asap. I need to get my work done. Who on earth creates this reminder? How stupid of him. Windows should give an option “Don’t Show this Dialog Anymore for Good”. Since I am fed up with this reminder, I do a search in Google, Keyword : “disable windows update restart”. The first entry answers my call Disable Windows Update restart nag. A simple solution. Open CMD and paste this command “sc stop wuauserv“. The stupid reminder will be gone for good. And of course the Windows Update will return in the next reboot. Take Care
