My System Specs

Default

nicest way is this, which is what I believe Squeetard was getting at:

Start -> run -> gpedit.msc

A group policy editor will open up. Navigate to:

Computer configuration -> Administrative templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update and then find:

"No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations" - set that to enabled

also handy to find:

"Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations" - set that to enabled and 1440 minutes, which means it'll harass you 4 hours later. I don't know if "0" will disable the "restart now!" prompt.

gpedit.msc brought nothing up.

If you want to be more precise about when Windows gets most of its updates:
Patch Tuesday - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Second Tuesday of the month, unless there's something critical.
