  • Might be there will be an option to stop automatic reboot after installing the updates. so on  internet i found some info which might be helpful for you...

    Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Update->No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Update installation

    You can get to this by running "gpedit.msc"

    Reboot to apply changes

    The best solution that I am aware of is to turn off automatic updates. Then you schedule maintenance windows with your customers and apply the updates manually and do the reboot then make sure everything that you need is running after the reboot.

    Just stopping the reboots is a bad idea because that gives the impression that you are fully updated when you really aren't since updates that need reboots to complete...well...you know...need reboots to complete.
