Default Windows Update

Hello.
You know how in Windows XP, every now and then a popup appears for Windows Update that tries to automatically restart my computer? Is there a way to disable the auto- restart ater 4 minutes thing? Because I leave my computer on with a few programs minimized, and it gets anoying when i come home and I se it restarted my computer.
Yeah I know i can totaly disable windows automatic updates, thats not what i want to do. What i want is only to disable the automatic restarts

Default Re: Windows Update

I'm pretty sure you can configure Windows Updates to download updates only and prompt before installing.
