HIPS 8.0 Patch 2 installtion requiring restart

I am in the initial phase of rolling out HIPS 8.0 Patch 2 to my machines that currently have HIPS 8.0 Patch 1 installed on them. In the HIPS 8.0 Patch 2 Readme file it states that the patch installation does not require a restart. In my limited testing so far the upgrade has been popping up a McAfee Agent Updater window saying that a "Restart required" about half of the time.  I also see the call to restart in the Windows Event logs. I have attached the contents of the Windows Application event log. I have seen this on both Windows 7 64-bit and Windows XP SP3 32-bit systems. Is there a way to suppress this restart notification? Thanks in advance.
