Repeated reboot required for pending updates in Windows Update

Note to self – when trying to stop the continued requests for reboots to install pending updates in Windows Update, one of the go-to things to check is theĀ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RebootRequired

Remember, don’t just delete the contents of this key, delete the actual key itself!
