Tool for reboot Windows 7 with program recovery

When S/W upgrades force a reboot with programs open the PC recovers those programs and open windows / tabs. For instance if MS Outlook is active with 3 open emails upon recovery Outlook restarts and the same 3 emails are opened again. When I manually reboot from the start menu area everything is shutdown and there is no recovery (since it was all shutdown during the reboot). Is there a tool to do a manual reboot with program recovery?
