  1. Select the check box next to Automatically reboot when needed and click Update. To have machines restart later, deselect the check box.
Automatic Reboot

We highly recommend rebooting automatically to ensure full protection of ESET modules. The task will run based on the agent selecting or deselecting the check box. When the check box is deselected, the system will still upgrade but it will not reboot. The maintenance window is preferred so updates can be performed outside of business hours and the reboot can process.
