I know what the message means and why it would pop up, that's not the issue.
The issue is that it happens basically everyday.
I hardly ever switch my PC off, but every evening I get home, trend wants to restart my PC again.
Are you saying that Trend drops complex content updates that require a PC restart everyday?

Hi hc.coertzen,

I think a reinstall will do the trick.
Hope that this helps.

Kind regards,
Tom

Hello hc.coertzen

After reinstalling the program, are you still getting the same Restart Required message? 

It would be nice if we can get some updates about this. 

Have a great week ahead!
