I dont know what you are talking about, since I have the .net framework installed, and it never asked me to restart. You could try typing msconfig in your run bar and disabling the service that is promting you to do it...

no i mean like whenever you do the automatic windows update to install new stuff from ms such as security patches, they prompt you to restart to have the files installed take effect

Um? Are you serious? After getting updates why won't you want to restart? That doesn't make any sense. After the updates are downloaded, don't select to install them until you are ready to restart. Windows needs to be restarted for all installed files to be properly installed. If you don't restart and continue to use windows you may create more problems then it's worth.

Just restart. Take 5 minutes out of you busy PC schedule to do it.
Geez...

Oh lol, yeah you would want to restart after that. If you do a lot of updates your system will be bogged down anyway.
