Windows update is a feature which downloads the latest windows updates and installs it on your system and maintains your system up-to-date unless you have manually set it to pause for specific number of weeks. For the performance of the system, it is always better to keep the windows updated by time to time which it does automatically and after the installation, the system needs to be restarted. If it gets restarted during the working hours, then your work will definitely get disturbed.
