    McAfee keeps prompting to restart - One or more Mcafee products were installed and require a system restart... WinXP




      I'm running into an issue with one of our VMs running Windows XP SP3 (keeping it around for an old application that a couple users still need...) in which McAfee has begun to prompt for a restart.   Not a big deal, except that even after restarting multiple times, the prompt keeps on coming back up even after restarting.   I've looked online and there seem to be similar issues reported elsewhere, but I couldn't find a solution that would quite resolve this yet.   Any help with this would be hugely appreciated!


      The exact message says:



      Restart Required


      One or more McAfee products were installed and require a system restart.   Press Yes to restart now or press No to restart later.


      [Yes]    [No]
