After we approve Microsoft Security Udpates on our XENApp6 Farm when users log into applications they receive a message asking if they want to reboot the server to finish installing the update.  How do we stop this message from appearing?

The behavior of Windows Update can be controlled via Group Policy, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc720539(WS.10).aspx

The actual group policy setting that needs to be disabled is Allow non-administrators to receive update notifications.  This way normal users are not accidently installing updates and rebooting servers.
