Hello,  I have a few Domain Users complaining that their Windows 2000 workstations are rebooting on them after a windows update and NOT giving them the option to postpone the reboot or cancel it all together..

Any ideas?

If at all possible I would like to give my users to the ability to Cancel or postpone the reboot.

Thanks,
-Mike-

You should be able to set this with group policy.  Check out the following link:

Under automatic updates there is an option to let the user decide when you reboot.  When you create (or modify) the policy make sure to designate this option.

Hope this helps
