VS updates work very differently than Windows updates, in terms of its insistence for getting them installed.

Is there really any reason you can't postpone the VS updates until you're not going to be using your system?

Most of the time I get update notifications for VS in the middle of the day. They're not preventing me from using VS. I just wait until quitting time (sometimes I let it wait for days, sometimes another update has already come out by the time I gave it the okay), then tell it to go ahead..and wait for the process to get far enough I know it's not going to be waiting for a confirmation prompt. By the time I come back next morning, everything's done.

Windows updates OTOH...don't get me started...
