Unfortunately, security applications are quite different from internet browsers in that they generally load drivers in kernal mode, which usually cannot be stopped once started, thus making a reboot an absolute necessity, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is no exception.
Also, with regards to installing program updates automatically or silently, I've yet to find a single security product that has such a feature, as all of the ones I have ever used or tested require the user to run through the installation process, just as we do, and then require a reboot to complete the installation (for the same reason mentioned above).
That being said, one area we would like to improve on is how frequently users are notified of a program update being available as well as how they are notified (i.e. something more prominent than a simple balloon tooltip), so hopefully this is something that we can work into a future release.
