Run prompt | gpedit.msc
Navigate to:
Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Windows Update
 
Select "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations" option.

In the properties window, change the option from "Not Configured" to "Enabled".
