WSUS: Shutdown or Restart?

Sorry, it might be a dumb question but I have searched Google and EE and co. up and down and did not find a satisfactory answer.

We have WSUS3 running for serveral servers and a bunch of clients. Everything works fine except that I have observed that for a while now (without anyone modifying the Group Policies) the clients are not prompted for restart anymore in the tastbar but only display the "Install Updates and Shutdown" option in the Start Menu. This is very annoying because the updates won't install on a normal restart!

Is this normal? Has this changed? I am confused. Please help.

There are a couple of group policy settings that control the behaviour of Windows Update on clients and servers. These are contained within..
Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Update
'Allow Non-Administrators to recieve update notifications' might be a good place to start.
Hope this helps.

Found it myself meanwhile: "Remove access to all Windows Update features" needs to be disabled.
