I followed your instructions but unfortunately, i get:

Please restart the computer
Press any key to continue . . .
So unfortunately, your suggestion did not work. Can you help?
You cannot modify without disabling McAfee Access Protection.
To disable AP please follow the below steps
- Open McAfee Security Center
- Click Navigation (Top left)
- Select General Settings and Alerts (Left)
- Open the Access Protection drawer.
- Deselect the option Use Access Protection.
Now try to edit the registry key and once you completed this do remember to enable the AP.
Hi, thanks for the pointer. I was able to sucessfully download and run TS100430.bat.
After rebooting my PC, I did not see the Reboot popup for a little bit (estimate 10 minutes)... but then it reappeared!
As such, unfortunately, it does not seem like the Reboot popup bug was fixed.
What else can I do to fix this annoying daily problem?
This seems like a different software triggering the update prompt to appear on screen . & Sorry for the inconvenience caused here due to the issue , Can you please click on Useful links at the top of this page and click on Technical support so as our technician could diagnose the issue and get it resolved for you .
I followed the steps outlined here again but this time, I did not go back to select the option Use Access Protection. Over the last 12 hours, I have not seen the annoying popup.
Perhaps it's the Use Access Protection selection that's causing this?
Is there any risk to my anti-virus to have Use Access Protection deselected?
