New Build Keeps Prompting Reboot

I'm using BD Antivirus Plus 2014 (Windows 8.1, 64-bit). My computer was automatically updated today to version I have since been prompted to reboot five times. I know this issue crops up every so often and am hoping a fix is already in the works, or that someone on the forum has advice. Thanks.


  • It's been over 2 hours and I haven't received the "needs to be rebooted" message, so maybe it's finally fixed itself.

  • Great, thanks for letting us know. :)

    A couple of emergency fixes were released during the last few days (the last one was released 7 hours ago) so it was normal to be prompted for a reboot.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    I am still having this same issue with both of my computers. I am getting the "needs to reboot" event from Update almost immediately after rebooting, never more than a few hours after reboot, over and over again. Something is not working right here.
