    Yes its really a problem when Windows goes for and automatic update and does a force reboot, at some time if its a some minor files it will give a option of postponing the reboot but if some file gets updated which is based on the Windows root then it goes for the force reboot but yes we can hack this problem too, just follow the few easy steps.
    STEP 1:Open run command from start or Windows key + R and type regedit and press ok.
    STEP 2: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate\AU
    STEP 3: If the above path is not found create it accordingly by selecting Edit -> New -> Key.
    STEP 4: Now inside AU -> Create a new 32-bit DWORD value named NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers and set the value to 1 to prevent automatic reboot while users are logged on.

    If you feel you want to revert back then delete the value to bring back to the default.

    You can change the settings of this auto update in your windows 7 OS so that you can not get the problem of automatic updates and you can change the settings by changing options in the control panel and also you may not get the rebooting problems in doing this type of change of settings in the automatic updates of the windows 7 operating system.
