    We are looking at changes to help avoid large numbers of reboot related alerts. This work is not yet planned, so I can’t provide a date, but the proposed implementation would be as below.

    For urgent reboots, e.g. to complete removal of a competitor product being replaced, users will see a notification immediately.

    For non-urgent reboots (i.e. where protection is maintained), users will not see a reboot for the first 2 weeks (typically they will reboot in this time anyway, e.g. for windows updates).

    If not rebooted for 2 weeks they will see a notification they can dismiss.

    The reboot notification be persistent on an endpoint; it will require acknowledgement by the user to clear it. We would expect to have a registry key to be able to prevent this behaviour for systems like shop tills, advertising displays and so on.

    If a further week goes by without a reboot…

    I can't believe I have to check each server for an informational message telling me to reboot them. We need some sort of notification or reporting!

    "Reboot to complete update" messages should put the device in warning status and not informational!
