thanks for posting this info i came here looking for the answer to what was making it do this. i have used it for over 6 months now and never had it do this reboot crap. yes it is crap to make it do that. not everyone's computer reboots in 30 seconds. mine all take 5 to 10 minutes to reboot and doing a scan after i get off line is stupid now because it makes it reboot. now i can just stop using it and go to some other program, but it took 4 months for my mom to get to know how to use this program and any of the others out there were way to hard for her to us. and this rebooting will keep her from being able to do anything on her computer at all because she gets tons of tracking cookies even though i have them limited to the pages she visits, why because she is doing family roots searching online, do you know how many pages and library sites she has to look at in an hour? then she has to get off line and type up what she found, but she runs this program when she gets off line, now thats going to take her another ten minutes for the reboot, and thats on top of the 45 minutes it takes for her computer to do the quick scan. it takes her system over 3 hours for the full scan. how long to you expect any 75 to 80 year old person to sit and wait on your program to do all the stuff.? she already sits and waits for the scan to finish, and thats after 4 to 10 hours of online searching. i tested the last version out before i had her download it and install it and found it did not require the reboot, and thats the whole reason i got this program. because it did not reboot, your not microsoft updates, so why the reboot. if your not going to get rid of the reboot then i'm going to have to get rid of this program and find another one for her to use and learn that works with a more user friendly interface and program code. the interface will be hard to find one easier, the way the program code works might take time to find better if you don't make it not reboot, but it wont' be impossible. i just prefer this GUI and program with out the need for rebooting.
