Windows – How to get rid of the annoying windows’ automatic update needs reboot popup as non-admin

While this answer may help if you're an admin, it doesn't help at work. So is there a way to get rid of this message without having to bother your admin?

  • This is just a workaround:

    Get ClickOff which you can install (e.g. in your home folder) and put to autorun as non-admin. When that stupid popup apears for the next time, move your mouse over the "later"-button but instead of clicking push Ctrl-Alt-D. From now on every time this plague reappears, ClickOff will automatically click on "later" for you. Unfortunately this way one may still lose keyboard focus every now and then.
