Because you screwed around for at least half a week without doing it at a time of your choosing.
Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

Yeah you gotta change that option.
It's been the first thing I do on every computer I have owned since Windows XP first introduced that stupidity.

At least 7 and 8 give you a warning, XP used to just restart and not give you a chance to save your work if you just happened to be away from your computer when it decided to do this.

I noticed 7 and 8 seem to have no trouble deciding to download and install updates (or just download) while your in a game, causing you to lag or stutter or lose framerate. So I disable updates entirely now and instead just every once in awhile run windows update manually.

It's stupid that updates need a restart in this day and age.
