Why did this happen? Shouldn't I get some sort of info that the update requires the system to reebot and let me decide WHEN I want that to happen? Is it some new microsoft policy to do that?
My updates are set to automatically download and install.
well under the settings given when you use automatically download and install the group policy editor default is to warn you 5 minutes prior to an automatic reboot, you can however turn this off if you have access to group policy editor which is available in professional, ultimate and enterprise
It can be well awkward if your not paying attention, in fact I was in the middle of a raid playing WOW with a few mates and my computer decided it was going to reeboot then once back to desktop it proudly announced it had installed updates
let me know if you want to turn this option off
