Winodws Update Restart Notification RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a bunch of TVs in our building that use IE to play videos of we created. We have it set so IE goes in full screen mode using ctrl +F11 keys.

    I have  schedule task that runs every Sunday for this purpose. What is happening is that if we push windows updates to all systems on Tuesday, they get a restart notification popup and it is displayed on the screen. Is there a way to set it up so that the windows update restart notification stays in the background of the IE full screen then the restart script will reboot the machine once a week.

    Also, after the reboot, IE pops up asking if we want to resume the session instead of just going to the home page. Can this function be disabled.

  • Hi,

    We cannot disable it due to the restart notification is important for update installation, but we can set the re-prompt time:

    Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update

    Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations: Enabled, wait period the maximum is 1440 minutes, just 24 hours.

  • Hi,

    Let’s disable it by the following method:

    Type  gpedit.msc in Win+R prompt to open group policy editor.

    Go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update

    Double click on “No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations”. In the dialogue box that comes up, select “Enabled” and click “OK”

  • I have tried that option and it does not work.
     
    What I am asking is after windows updates install themselves automatically on the PC, is there a way so it never displays the windows restart notification ever or a way if it does show up that it stays in the background behind all windows that are open?
