Windows 7 Restart reminder me in... window RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Not a question but have one query,

    Windows 7 gives the popup for Windows Update restart windows – Reminder me in 10mins, 1 hour and 4 hours.
    Is there any way to change it? Let’s see I want custom entry as 6 hours or 12 hours in drop down.

    Thanks & Regards, Kedar

  • Hi,

    If your computer is not in a domain environment, you can change the following registry for testing. Before changing the registry, please backup it first.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU, in the right pane, change value RebootRelaunchTimeout to 720 (12 hours=720 minutes).

    Configure Automatic Updates in a Non–Active Directory Environment
