Under 10 seconds with SSD and Win8.

About 10 seconds with SSD and Win7.


There's more to a restart than simply boot time. You've also got the time you have to take to save anything that may need saving in apps you currently have open, then you got to close those, and then wait for windows to finally unload and shut down.

Yeah true, I guess some people may have been in the process of creating some art masterpiece in Photoshop, while writing their biography in MS Word, then like... oh, I almost forgot to install my new game, better git er done. lol. Oh damn, I gotta restart now, and I had all that other stuff on the go too. lol!!

Just because you don't multitask doesn't mean others don't as well.

I do, I was only trying to be funny or sarcastic, something like that. So just add another 5 to 10 seconds for saving/closing apps. No big deal.
Besides, like the screenshot displays, you do have the option to NOT restart at that given time, like any other program installation or updates.

Try installing Battlefield 2 from the original retail package.

If you don't know : It asks you for a Name & Company (seriously - it won't continue until you enter both), AND a reboot when it's finished.

Unless it is a driver update or a windows update. Does anyone actually restart their PC when an application tells them to?

Not really, especially after you add in the time to close down all your apps and restart them back to where you were.

Gladily I use Steam. Almost 99% of games on Steam will not ask for a reboot but many will still install any additional crap like framework or directx.

No, the point is you're making a big deal out of what is essentially nothing, it won't kill you to reboot your system, you could stretch, or go take a **** or go get a drink and be back doing what you were doing

No. you're still ignoring closing down all the apps, shutting down, and starting all the apps back to where you were again. reboot is more than just starting up.

I hate having to restart my computer too, and software like this is just rude.
