Your computer might also be acting funny forcing the need to reboot and it will be a bit risky to run updates at that time. In Windows 10, you will get a notification about the update being downloaded and prepared for installation and ask you to restart to apply the updates.

Start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer. All other fans in the computer require you to open your case to inspect them.

The fact that WU lets you select a later time for automatic restart can seem a bit misleading, but it’s there for a logical purpose: it’s there for you to select a convenient point of time when the pending updates will be installed in case this PC is one that’s always on.
