Windows 7: Auto update restart on its own.

Auto update restart on its own.

It's been a while since I posted anything as I have just now taken care of a pirated W 7 problem. I have resolved and am legit now, but if I ever find the guy who, well never mind. Here is my issue. I now have W 7 Home premium. I have windows update set to auto update. As I was checking email and just cruizin the net etc. My pc just shut down and restarted. I discovered that it was the auto update. I want to continue to use auto update, but I don't want my pc to shut down and restart even though it warns me. Can anyone tell me how to change this?
Thanks, John
