    Under Computer Configuration : Administrative Templates : Windows Components : Windows Update :
    Configure Automatic Updates : Choose option 4, and set install time.
    No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations : Select Not Configured or Disabled
    Allow Automatic Updates immediate installation : Enabled
    Delay restart for scheduled installations: Enable and Set timer (allows users to save data before restart)

    Is the computer in a domain? Then MAYBE the configuration is set by the domain controllant and you need to set it there.
