Turn Off Windows XP Update Restart Notification

I cannot stand the mandatory restart notifications popping up every 5 minutes whenever I install the latest updates for Windows XP. I stumbled across a handy little piece of software called “Leave Me Alone” to temporarily fix the problem until I configure Windows to turn the notifications off forever.

    start > run > net stop wuauserv

    running that command will also disable update restart notifications. temporary fix which will reset itself after you manually restart your system, but at least you don’t have to download anything.
