    Disabling automatic restart feature for Windows Update in Windows 7 Home premium

    I have placed my laptop running on Windows 7 Home premium into Sleep mode yesterday night. But when I checked my laptop this morning, I found it is already restarted as a result of update installation by Window Update. I have lost some of the files due to this. In what way can I turn off automatic restart for Windows Update?

    Press the Windows key+R on keyboard to bring up ‘Run’ dialog box and type regedit.exe into the ‘Open’ field. Click on the ‘OK’ button after that for opening up the ‘Registry Editor’. Navigate into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows from the left pane in the editor and check whether the keys WindowsUpdate\AU are present. If not, get into the ‘Edit’ menu and select New->Key options. Give the name ‘Windows Update to the new key. After that, you need to get into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate and repeat the above steps to create new key named ‘AU’. Right click on AU key and select New->DWORD value. A 32-bit DWORD value will be created on right pane. Click on it and give the name ‘NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers’. Right click on that value and type 1 in ‘Value Data’ field. Quit the ‘Registry Editor’ afterward and see whether the automatic restart gets disabled or not.
