    how do i immediately stop windows 8 from install rebooting


    i am so tired of getting to my computer and it has rebooted because there were some updates it installed and I lost all the work I was working on.

    How do I keep this from happening? I want to be notified of updates and have the reboot up to me.

    And make this site able to have a longer thread title since it took me a bit to come up with something that fit in the bar.
