I need Microsoft to hear this really clearly! Update restarts have to go in Windows 8!

How they make it go away is their issue but this is just something that seems to be so 1990’s that it’s awful. I have to say, it was a great step to get the computer to remind me in 10 minutes or 4 hours but still, it needs to go away.

I mentioned this on this blog in March of 2011 and in June of 2011.

Sorry to be repetitive but it just popped up again and it really gets my goat.

What about you guys? what do you think?

    I agree, Normally when I update my PC,I plan to reboot afterward. This is the case with security updates. I don’t mind the window coming up stating a reboot is in order, but to remind me later? Does not make sense to me.

    I agree, While working it causes a head ache to save all your job restart and then start over.

    Well, i sometimes think that Windows 8 should have been a clear break with the past even if it means hardware requirements increase to fully support backward compatibility through virtualization.
    This way Windows 8 would be a clear and clean restart and would fix much more problems and limitations.
    Btw, i would be curious to see if WIndows 8 for ARM requires reboot after any kind kind of updates.

    I have to totally & respectufully disagree with you.  There are many times I need that to be able to finish work & it helps keep me informed.  I find when people make comments about something as petty as the notification, they need to lighten up.  As an alternative, maybe Microsoft could make it a configuration choice as to whether or not you want it to appear.  But then again, if they did that, you would be petty about why they did it.
