Is there a way to force the install of WSUS updates at shutdown of a users pc?

I currently have WSUS up and running on the network.  It is able to update machines with no problem but I am having an issue with the users not installing the updates when they reboot at the end of the day.  I have the policy set to make their default shutdown option to install the updates but they have the option to pick something else from the shutdown menu.  What I am trying to figure out is if there is a way to only make the install updates and shut down option valid and none of the others.

Hi petetownshend,

Sounds to me like your users might have the option to log off as well as shutdown.  Have you tried looking into configuring a Group Policy that makes their only option to Shutdown?

In the policy for Automatic updates you can also set the option that reboot will be mandatory. The only problem is that if you do that the user will get a grace time when they can save current work before reboot will be applied. This option is therefore primarily used when the user leaves the workstation on over night and you do the update at non working hours
