Disable restart prompt


It's irritating when your mom tells you to turn off your computer when you are doing some important work or playing a game. Isn't it?
The restart prompt is just like that "mom". It's frustrating when you get a prompt to restart your computer when you don't want to.

Why is it so & how does it happen?
When you are connected to the Internet, the important updates are automatically downloaded. After the completion of the windows update, you get a message to restart your PC so that the updates can be applied to the computer and the registry can be upadted.

Now this is the most irritating part. Imagine that you are browsing something that is very important to you & do not want to restart or get an advanced tension of restarting it later. I admit that you can click the button restart later, but what if you could permanently remove this nagging screen?

Voilla!!! You can remove this nag screen. You can disable restart prompt. Thanks to the registry editor!

How to do it
  1. Click run located on the start menu.
  2. Now type "regedit" and click OK.
  3. Now you will encounter a registry editor screen.
  4. In the registry editor screen, navigate to- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies > Microsoft\Windows
  5. On the right pane, right click & select New => Key
  6. Now a Folder is created.
  7. Right click the folder created on the left pane & select New => Key
  8. Now you will see a sub-folder. Rename this sub-folder to AU (AutoUpdate)
  9. Now return to the right pane & select New => DWORD Value.
  10. Now right click on the new DWORD Value created & change the name to- NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers & the value to 1 (value 0 means false & 1 means true).


Now you are completed with the operation of preventing windows from showing that irritating, frustrating restart dialogue box. Now you may restart the windows to see the changes. From now, you wont be asked to restart windows after updating you system

A single restart for preventing the lifetime automatic restart. Seems like a profitable deal isn't it?
