Hello IT people

I've scheduled a script to run everyday at night for the servers to check for update and install it if the servers found one.
But recently, the servers keeps restarting everytime after installing updates. Is there any way I could stop them from restarting?

my script:

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Confirm:$false
Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate
Install-WindowsUpdate -Confirm:$false
Set-ExecutionPolicy Restricted -Confirm:$false
