WSUS - windows 8 wont install updates on shutdown in WSUS Posted January 21, 2014 · Report reply Thank you very much for you response. With our windows 7 computers the Windows update GPO has been setup to do the following. Updates are downloaded to the computer. Updates are installed automatically when the user shuts down the computer. This is done by selecting >>Start button>> Shutdown option (not by using shutdown and install updates) I hope this makes sense.
