Hmm the picture didn't show for me earlier.

 

I think I understand the question (with no answer) however I don't get the part about how it "returns you open programs without erasing the jobs open them." I get the meaning of this part, but it is implying that your programs re-open after restart?

Well, the translation is...

 

Restart the computer to finish installing important updates.

Windows can not update services and important files while the system is using. Be sure to save the files before rebooting.

Restarting in: 14 min 34 s
Notify within 4 hours
Restart now
Postpone

...weird to say the least. (Restart timer bar "time"...)

Also another presumption. It is known that you can use shutdown.exe to restart the computer and not install the updates, even if updates are pending like this. I'd imagine that it is actually Windows Update doing something, then calling the restart function. It might be possible to determine it somewhat by looking at the log files for Windows Update and maybe setupact.log. It is difficult to get good traces at the point of shutdown because Windows has a habit of ending the program you are using to monitor the system.

That "command line" running windows by pressing the reset button with windows update

That command is shutdown.exe /g. It's a  seriously cool but not under-utilized feature in Windows! default_w00t.gif

 

In Windows Vista and later, using the command line tool shutdown.exe with the /G switch will automatically restore many (note but not all) apps which you have running before the reboot! No need to close them manually and restore them one by one.

 

What apps are restored depends on which apps register with Windows' RegisterApplicationRestart function for reboot.

 

Using a tool like Application Recovery and Restart Explorer, you can easily see which apps will automatically restart!

 

Windows Update already uses this feature but the Start Menu's Restart command does not. But you can use Shutdown /G.

 

Here's a list of applications with register for Application Recovery and Restart (which means they will be automatically restarted):

Ehh?

That "command line" running windows by pressing the reset button with windows update
I just did a Windows (actually a Microsoft) Update Monday Afternoon (EST) and didn't get that messege. All I got was (something like) "Youmust restart Windows to complete Updates", which I did and it completed.

 

Windows 7 with SP1 Pro Edition (Refurbisher OEM System Builder)

1 - Go to Windows (MS) Update, deselect what you don't want (everything list in "I Don't Want Windows 10")

2 - Wait a God-awful time to download and install roughly 385 MB

3 - Press the Reboot

4 - Wait a God-awful time for it to complete

5 - "Welcome" Screen.

I had manually installed IE10 before I did the above.

 

My screen looked *nothing* like yours. Maybe your Auto-Update setting is different?

 

So Color Me Stumped. :unsure:
