If you want to temporarily disable the annoying "Restart row" dialog from Windows XP's automatic updates, open the command console and type:

net stop "automatic updates" (or "aggiornamenti automatici" if you are using italian language localization)

This doesn't disable the automatic updates service, but just stops it.
The next time you start up your computer, it will restart.
