i am using a windows xp professional version 2002 sp3 laptop.

automatic updates have been installed on my pc and it pops up a window saying

"updating your computer is almost complete. you must restart your computer for the updates to take effect. do you want to restart your computer now ? or 'restart later'"

I dont want to restart now. hence when i am clicking on restart later, the pop up is coming up after another 15 minutes or so.

i went to task manager-> processes -> and ended the process called wuauclt.exe which is responsible for this process, but i notice that this process is automatically started within another 10 seconds .

though i understand that , it is good for me to restart my laptop and have a successful install of my updates, I still want to know of a method to
supress these updates until i like to restart my laptop

Hope somebody could help

thank you all in anticipation,

Hello abcd_1,

Try this:
  • Click "Start," "Control Panel," and in classic view, double click on the "System."
  • Click on the "Automatic Updates" tab.
  • Select "Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them."
  • Click "Apply," then "OK."
  • Now you determine when to install them and reboot.

Regards,
Brooks

restart for updates
in the comments, there's a good idea to only delay the restart longer.
