When a product update for your Avira product is performed, you may have to restart your computer system. If you have selected automatic product updates under Local protection > Update > Product update, you can choose between the different restart notification and restart cancellation options under Restart settings. (Options available in expert mode only.)
Note that your restart settings allow you to choose between two options for executing a product update requiring a computer restart in the configuration under Local protection > Update > Product update.
Download and install product updates automatically: The update and the restart are performed while users are working on their computers. If you have enabled this option, it may be useful to select restart routines with a cancel option or reminder function.
Download product updates. If a restart is necessary, install the update after the system restart, otherwise install it immediately: the update and the restart are performed after users have started up their computers and logged in. Automatic restart routines are recommended for this option.
Restart the computer after n Seconds (with countdown messages, cannot be canceled)
If this option is enabled, the restart which is necessary after a product update has been executed is performed automatically at the specified interval. A countdown message appears with no option for canceling the computer restart.
Periodic restart reminder
If this option is enabled, the restart which is necessary after a product update has been executed is not performed automatically. At the specified interval, you will receive restart notifications without cancel options. These notifications let you confirm the computer restart or select another time for the reminder.
Query whether computer should be restarted
If this option is enabled, the restart which is necessary after a product update has been executed is not performed automatically. You will receive only one message, which offers the option to perform a restart directly or cancel the restart routine.
