Exclamation Restart now greyed out
I have a user running XP with SP3 installed. Automatic updates were applied and the restart message appeared but the "Restart now" button was greyed out. The user did a manual restart but the message continues to appear. The user does not have Admin priviledges.

You can find some answers HERE.

Or, you can simply get rid of the prompt to restart:

Disable Restart Prompt After Installing Windows Updates

Or, if you don't have Windows XP Pro, for Home, do it from the regsitry:

Disable Restart After Windows Update

Thanks Phantom010, but this just covering up the problem. I need to know why it's happening even after a restart of the machine.

Thanks for your fast response!
