    Windows says McAfee update will conflict with XP. Can I safely restart?

      During today's McAfee Security Center automatic update, a screen appeared saying that this Anti-Virus update would cause XP not to work properly.

To complete the update, you must restart your computer."

      What should I do?? McAfee tells me I must restart, but I'm worried I'll cause XP to malfunction if I do.
