    can you turn off the every 10 minute notification of this? I understand that
    I have to do this and don't mind the warning once but I don't want it every
    10 minutes for the duration of my session. Sometimes that is convenient and
    sometimes it is not. More often than not I want to wait until the next
    shutdown/startup occurs naturally and hitting "restart later" every 10
    minutes for 8 hours is beyond annoying.

    my short term solution has been to allow the updates to download but not
    install until it's time to turn the pc off. I hoping there is a better way.

    That is the best method. Installing a Critical update without a required
    reboot may leave the system in a "mixed" state. IOW, if there were a
    Critical vulnerability that the update was intended to address, then the
    system is *still* vulnerable until rebooted.

    One can set the notification to a greater period of time, but it can not
    be disabled.
