    Hard drive failed. Installed new hard drive. Now when updates are ready to
    install, "gold shield" in task bar says updates are ready to install, click
    here. Then, if computer needs to restart, window pops up with restart now or
    restart later. Prior to installing hew hard drive, never saw this. If
    computer needed to restart to install updates, when I clicked start, turn off
    computer, I was advised that updates were installing and computer would turn
    off when complete. How do I get this feature back?

    The restart now or restart later message only comes up once the updates have
    already been downloaded. When you click start > shut down, the message
    saying that the updates are installing and computer will shut down when
    complete only refers to updates that you have not chosen to install yet. If
    there are updates available on the automatic updates gold shield and you
    don't choose to install them at that point, the message will appear just
    like before and won't be bothered by the "restart now or restart later"
    message anymore :)
    Best of luck

    Thanks, but today I chose not to install them, and the restart now or restart
    later kept popping up.
