Why only restart works for updating? Shutting down and turning on doesn't work!

I hate restarting my PC just so Bitdefender could be updated, especially how it happened several times in the last few days! I shut off my PC every night but then the next day Bitdefender still asks me to restart my PC! Normally shutting off and on should do the job in lieu of restarting everytime.

If there is no way around this and I have to restart my PC each time it updates, is there a way to turn-off the pop-up message that I need to restart my PC? I would rather not get updates again. 



  • Hello,


    What Windows version are you running on that machine ?

    I think it's related to fast startup functionality. Restarting the machine fully unloads all drivers and services, helping Bitdefender to update itself.
