Windows Update dialog box asked to restart but the restart option is grayed out

In the past if update ran overnight there would be a hidden notice or balloon notice near the clock.  The past few months Microsoft change something and now users get the most annoying dialogue box demanding a restart or postpone.  Users were able to restart to get rid of this but lately many cannot select the "restart" option and if they just manually reboot their computer , the message comes back.
I can log in as an administrator, reboot and the message is gone until the next time.  Why all of a sudden would admin rights be needed to finalize updates?
Is there a way to correct this without giving users local admin  - we cannot do this.
thank you

The issue has been resolved - turns out the message was being posted by the Citrix server and showing up on all users after they loaded the first published application.  Resolved by correcting (restarting) the citrix servers.
thank you for the response.
