OK, I have just had a pop-up in the task bar (over the systems tray) that has informed me to re-start my computer as BT Net Protect Plus/McAfee has installed some important updates.I have only had McAfee for eight days, I was just wondering what this was. I am new to McAfee, is this a regular (weekly) occurrence or just occasional?
It seemed to go well anyway. 'Recent Events' claims there has been a 'one-time change' to my computer & gives a series of times.
'Details' informs me about how spyware can make changes to the Win.ini file.
Rule type: File

Today's update was a major one and did require a reboot. Usually the daily updates are only DAT updates for VirusScan and rarely require a reboot, but once in a while this happens. I wouldn't let it worry you.
