Stopping the Windows Update ‘Restart Now’ Popup with ‘net stop’

Because I always forget:

1) Open a command prompt (Start->Run->cmd.exe)

2) Type “net stop wuauserv” and hit enter.

3) Enjoy no longer getting knocked out of StarCraft 2 while you’re in the middle of your rush.

(Tested in Windows XP, YMMV in other operating systems.)
