Computer always updating shutdown
It might become a bit annoying if you are in hurry and want to shut down your system immediately without wasting your time in installing those updates and sometimes it gets worst when you accidentally click on the button in hurry. If you want to permanently remove this "Install updates and shut down" option, then create a new DWORD No AUShutdown Option and set its value to 1 It'll completely remove "Install updates and shut down" option from Start Menu.
Today in this tutorial, we are going to tell you a Registry trick to disable this feature and set Windows to not replace your existing power button with its own install updates button in Start Menu. Type regedit in RUN or Start Menu search box and press Enter. BONUS TIP: Sometimes Windows automatically restarts your computer to install scheduled updates.

Now select AU key and in right-side pane create a new DWORD No AUAs Default Shutdown Option and set its value to 1 Now Windows will no longer overwrite Shut Down button in Start Menu with Install updates button and you'll get "Install updates and shut down" option in power options list which appears when you click on the little arrow given near the shut down button as shown in following screenshot: 7.
Many a time I’ve been working on some article or piece of software and I take a break to go get a snack, only to come back and see my computer has automatically restarted, losing a portion, or sometimes all of my work.
I also have a habit of opening multiple notepad windows containing temporary notes for an article or the like that are never meant to be saved that get lost in these cases.
These two solutions are going to work best for people with “Home” or “Home Premium” versions of Windows.
Just did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate after procrastinating for years on my old Pentium 4 computer with XP.
