Windows 7: Reboots after patches...

Reboots after patches...

I keep my system up most of the time. The automatic updates which reboot my system are starting to really get me angry. The big issue is that I edit a ton of photos and between edits mid session getting killed and my outlook file getting closed improperly the "FIXES" from MS are causing more problems than they are helping.

What change do I have to make so that the updates download and wait for me to install? I do want to put the updates in. I just want to do it when I am done with my work.

Thanks,
RA

LOL.. I will have to check that but I am fairly certain I set if from the start to "Notify" of important udates... I am wondering if MS "Helped" me by changing this to "Install"... I will check this out tonight.
Thanks,
