Hi Samy, I think the above is the new message :) When an install program wants to restart the computer it is because it has made changes to the registry and for those changes to take effect the computer has to be restarted which forces Windows to reload the registry. There are sometimes other reasons, too, but I'd say 99.9% of the time it's registry changes that need to be put into effect. So if you don't restart the computer for any reason, that program and, possibly, other programs might be unstable or behave oddly until the machine is restarted. If your computer has a problem shutting down and restarting when an install program tries to do it, just restart manually and all should be well.
