Stop restart popup after automatic updates in Windows XP

Absolutely annoying feature of windows is a popup that keeps asking you to restart the system after a Windows update. Disable that!

# Disable current popup from the command prompt

net stop "automatic updates"

# Disable future auto restarting of system. 
# I'm using Windows XP Home so can't access gpedit.msc. 
# Need to use a registry script instead --> stop_update_restart.reg
# P.S. note the first line.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
