    is there any way (other than restarting) to get rid of this awful box that
    keeps poping up every 10 minutes asking me about restarting to finish the
    update? Maybe I'm a smart enough person to decide for myself when I would
    like to restart and don't want to be annoyed while doing actual work. Any
    help would be great.

    If you install an update and are then told to restart to finish the update -
    then restart.

    Hey Gophergutz,

    You most likely have installed a very crucial update that needs to have your pc rebooted.

    Otherwise, if you don't reboot, you leave yourself open for the potential of a application crash or worse a system crash. The end result could be you lose your
    currently worked on data. The update recognizes that the system is now in an unstable state due to the changes it has made. Now to complete those
    changes, we need to reboot the system.

    If your using automatic updates, you can schedule the updates to be installed during your off hours if you are at home. If your at work, you may wish to follow-
    up with your local technical support regarding the installation of updates during business hours.
