Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update


Have you seen the message
"Automatic Updates
Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect.
Do you want to restart your computer now?"
Automatic Windows updates are very good for computer security. However, when these Windows updates are downloaded and installed on your computer, if the updates require a reboot of your computer, Windows keeps prompting you to reboot your computer.

Now, Windows XP Pro users can disable automatic reboot of the computer after a Windows Update. In order to do that, follow these steps

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Pro usersWith this setting you will be able to specify that after a scheduled Windows update, Automatic updates will wait for the computer to be restarted by any user who is logged on, instead of causing the computer to restart automatically. If this setting is not enabled or not configured, your computer will prompt you every 5 minutes to restart the computer to complete the installation.


1. Press <Windows Key> + R which will launch the Run command. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter
2. Group Policy Editor will now be launched
3. On the left hand pane, under Local Computer Policy, click on the (+) sign next to Computer Configuration
4. Click on the (+) sign next to Administrative Templates. Then click on (+) next to Windows Components and then click on Windows Update
5. Double click on No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations. A settings window will now open. In there, select Enabled and then press OK

6. Close the Group Policy Editor

1. Press <Windows Key> + R and type in regedit. Press Enter
2. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SoftwarePolicies MicrosoftWindows WindowsUpdateAU
3. Change the "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers" DWord value to 1 to Disallow auto reboot.

Use MS Internet Explorer. Windows Update is under Tools. You might also have that option in Start > All Programs > Microsoft Update at the very top of the start menu.

I HAVE A 6 YEAR OLD DELL WITH SP 2. IS THAT THE LATEST UPGRADE?


Hi,

The latest service pake for XP is SP3, you can download and install it by performing a Microsoft Update by clicking on the the start menu and above where it says "All Programs" look for Windows/Microsoft Update.

Once SP3 is installed i recommend you perform another MS update to update SP3.

Genuine counterfeiting


What does this mean? Do you have a question about the authenticity of your Operating System?

Best way to verify if it is genuine is to try to update it through the Microsoft Update site. MS will check it and tell you almost immediately if it is the genuine product or not.

If you purchased a counterfeit product, MS will definitely want to know about that as well. Where and from whom, etc.

Start looking here http://www.microsoft.com/Genuine/ or the windows update site.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Try to un-install the software of your MS Office Home and Student 2007 Edition, then Install it again, this will solve your problem, make it sure that you have your product key before you un-install your software, you may need it when during the installation

This computer did not pass genuine windows validation test.


It really is a nuisance for users with genuine products. This has also occurred to many people with MS Office 2003. It could however be caused by someone installing XP or Office that used a Corporate License that will require updating in a different way and not via the MS Auto Update procedure.

You can simply uninstall the MS update check that does the validation or return you machine to a known good state via the system, restore function. Look at your system history to see which update you need to uninstall and avoid reinstalling next time you get the option. So turn off auto updates and then make sure you control which updates are applied.

Also call the store where you bought the system if they are still in business.
