    stupid updates

    Don't understand why an update to a web browser would necessitate a
    reboot of a machine.................

    It helps the virus spread better.


    If you mean, IE, I think it's so tightly a part of explorer/Windows that it
    makes sense.

    Yeah, figured as much, just a royal PITA

    If one of the underlying components is in use then it may prompt for a
    reboot. :-/

    For example, the following DLL-s are in the latest IE5 cumulative update:
    ( http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=980182 )

    Browseui.dll, Dxtmsft.dll, Iepeers.dll, Inseng.dll, Jsproxy.dll,
    Mshtml.dll, Msrating.dll, Pngfilt.dll, Shdocvw.dll, Shlwapi.dll,
    Url.dll, Urlmon.dll, Wininet.dll

    Shlwapi.dll (Shell Light-weight Utility Library) is part of the
    winlogon.exe core OS process which it seems can
    be restarted only by restarting entire Windows OS ...
