Windows 7 Clients automatically reboot after updates from our WSUS Server

From what I can tell all group policy are set up correctly so the clients should not automatically reboot after windows updates are performed from our WSUS Server, however, the Windows 7 machines reboot.  Has anyone experienced this issue?  Is so do you know of a fix?
