    Completely agree with this.

    I would add on top, that with this should also come much more visibility and description in the dialog. So instead of wording to the effect of "Recently installed software requires you restart", instead along the lines of "Windows Updates have been installed and you are required to restarted" etc.. or even better, allow us to customise it!

    Whilst someone is working on this... they could even build in a "Windows Updates are available to be installed, or will be installed automatically at *deadline*" message. ;).

    There is a simple enough workaround for this, for anyone who does not know:

    Create an Application, but leave the Content Location blank, and set the Installation Program line to a network location, i.e \\Server\Share\MyInstall.bat

    SCCM will run this directly from the client, without downloading content.

    I would stress this should only really be necessary for situations like Daniel Ratliff has said, if you want this because you don't want to fill up storage space on the client, like I often hear people say, then you need to better control the cache as a pose to this workaround.
