Windows 7: Can I install Windows Updates Automatically, but not restart auto?

SOLVED: Can I install Windows Updates Automatically, but not restart?

Can I install Windows Updates Automatically, but not restart automatically?
Or disable restarting after installing updates?
I am leaving my computer to run programs while I am away, and it is a b*tch to see coming home and see Windows restarted.
I chose the option to download, but ask me to install. That is my solution, but I was wondering if there was any way to disable automatic restarting.
(I know, just install when you want is a great option, I was just wondering, that is it.)

P.S.: Do we have a delete post option in the forum. At least in the next 15 minutes or an hour, or posts without a reply?

If you've set Updates to ask you to install, you are installing them yourself not automatically so install them when you can handle the restart but not when you are doing something else.

Yes, you are right. As I said, I was just wondering...
