My pc shuts down, WITHOUT WARING, to update software. It cause me to lose whatever work I am doing.
How can I prevent this from happening again?

***Use at your own risk! HP does not support nor indorse this.***
It will bring up local policy editor.
Click on "Computer Configuration" -> "Administrative tools" -> "Windows Components" -> "Windows Update"
In the "Windows Update" portion you will now see "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled Automatic Updates Installations" -> double click that and set to "Disabled" in the radio button. -> then apply and you may need to re-start for it to take effect.
