Avast Asking for a Reboot

Threaded View
Twice since I updated the Avast Free engine yesterday, I have received a  
message that Avast needs to reboot.
I have been using Avast Free for several yrs (no, I don't let it load  
Chrome) and haven't seen this before.
I updated the engine yesterday and let it restart and do its thing and  
(after refusing Chrome, etc) it finished up. Many hours later it asked for  
another reboot. WTF?
Then today, it asked for another one.
When I did the engine update yesterday, it found and stopped an MBAM file ,  
forgot the name but it was in System32/Drivers, and then I had to let it put  
it in the exclude part to keep MBAM Pro functioning.
Just wondering why Avast would ask for a reboot when no further engine  
updates were voluntarily  installed.
Thanks,
Buffalo

Well, I think I have the answer about the necessary reboot. I was experiment  
with changing the software update option and automatic definition updates  
settings.
So, no problems
