This was a great find; however, I can't seem to locate a similar place in the Registry Editor for Windows 7 to apply something like this. If anyone knows, please post. I am always in the middle of something important when Windows 7 decides to ninja-shutdown. Thanks.

Cannot check the registries of either of those at the moment.
Maybe this will help you out for the moment,

Change your Automatic updates to install only at times you want such as at 5:00 AM in the morning would seem the best solution. You can also tell it not to install updates automatically and require you to click on the update icon.

My settings were set to not install automatically when I made this post. I downloaded Shutdownguard and turned my settings back to install automatically. I hope this works. Thank you for the info!
