Your System Has Been Automatically Updated.... HOW DO I STOP THIS!!!

I searched online for this once before after losing work when Windows restarted in the middle of the night ALL BY ITSELF. And I found a tutorial that supposedly fixed this but it didn't work... and it STILL does it... and it happened to me again last night.

How do I keep Windows from restarting??? I want to choose WHEN updates are installed certainly and WHEN MY COMPUTER IS RESTARTED? DEFINITELY!!!!

You'd think that would just be a given!

This one drives me nuts. When I'm in my file explorer (file manager), and the cursor goes down and highlights the dvd drive, it does an 'eject', and everything freezes because it takes the computer 10 seconds to think about opening the drive. Then I have to close it by hand, and everything...
