          I would contact BT support in the 1st instance.

          My suggestion is to uninstall (they should have a tool to do that as our tool here might not work for your version). Then reinstall as sometomes things get corrupted in an install and a clean reinstall helps. My thoughts

            Hi there,

            During the update process, a registry key might remain after the update cycle is complete. In this situation, the update service may continue to request a system restart.


            If you are still prompted to reboot the computer after you did, perform the steps below.

            IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry. Before you modify the registry, make sure to back it up and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For information about how to back up, restore, and edit the registry, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

            XP / Vista :

            1. Click the link below to download TS100430.bat.
              http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/TS100430.bat to your Desktop.
            2. Save the file to your desktop.
            3. Double-click TS100430.bat. For Windows Vista, right-click TS100430.bat and select Run As Administrator.

              IMPORTANT: This batch file contains commands which will modify your Windows registry. Before running any batch file, ensure that you trust the source of the file and know its intended purpose.
            4. Restart your computer.


            You should be Ok
