 +If you decide to use automatic updates, you should lengthen (or eliminate) the "​restart reminder"​ interval, which defaults to a mind-searingly frustrating 10 minutes.  ​
 +  * Run "​gpedit.msc"​
 +  * Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update
 +  * Either enable "No auto-restart for schedule Automatic Updates installations"​ to turn off the nags, or set "​Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations"​ to a larger interval (e.g. 1440 minutes = 24 hours).
