    Oh, there's also a clickable text that tells you why the restart is needed...

    Do registry edits require a reboot to activate? If so, that could be why. (Assuming of course that the update had to edit a registry.)

    @jmclemo6 they don't. If they're changed and you read them again yiu get the new value, no stale copies and ths change is applied to the registry immediately. Problem is that most settings in the registry do require a restart because it's easier to get the user to restart than reload everything in code...
