Windows sometimes restart even when there is a user logged in.  This can be remedied with the following registry edits. The attached file contains these edits.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000005
"AutoInstallMinorUpdates"=dword:00000001
"IncludeRecommendedUpdates"=dword:00000001
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"RebootWarningTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000000
"RebootWarningTimeout"=dword:00000090
"RebootRelaunchTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000001
"RebootRelaunchTimeout"=dword:000005A0
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000001
