    Unexpected restarts after product deployments


      Even though we had the check-box in our 4.8 agent policy unchecked to force reboots, users are saying their systems have previously rebooted automatically shortly after seeing the prompt telling them that a restart is required because one or more McAfee products were updated.

      This has happened more than once.  Due to this issue, we are now reluctant to do mass deployments of product updates to workstations and servers because we can't have them restart automatically.


      Are there certain types up product deployments or updates that force system restarts even if you have your agent policy set to not force restarts?
