Remove Windows Update restart flag

When you install a Windows Update that requires a system restart, it creates the following registry key (which is removed after restarting):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RebootRequired

You can delete this key manually if needed.
