Windows 7: No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates

No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates

hiya,

I am running the home edition of windows 7 as fresh install and I have just come across a limitation i can't seem to get beyond.

I want to enable the "No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates" which I would normally do using gpedit.msc, which of course isn't available in the home edition

question is does anyone know where i need to add the registry key as the folder hierarchy isn't the same as vista so the normal route HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU doesn't exist

any ideas ??
