If your computer is continuously asking to reboot to install updates on your computer.

The reason for this maybe down to a registry key stuck on the machine.

When you update your machine this Key is added to the registry and then deleted when you reboot.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RebootRequired

To remove this go to the Windows ICON and then Type in regedit. Then follow the path above.

Once you have located the reboot required key right click and then Export the key. Save this somewhere safe in case this doesn’t work. Then delete the reboot required Folder.


Another Location that will ask you to reboot your machine will be located in the Registry path.
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations
