11.  Finish - Restart Your Computer sometimes required.



Sometimes, you must restart your computer. The reason you would be required to restart your computer is if a DLL or other program object was in use by another program that needed to be replaced by WebAccess; this sometimes happens with older versions of Windows (e.g. 98, 2000) or older service packs. If all items are copied without a conflict with another program, then you will not be prompted you to restart and you don't have to restart.
