last resort for computers that have not restarted
The purpose of Reboot Watcher is to act as a last resort for computers that have not restarted after an upgrade, a patch or application installation that do require a restart.
Reboot Watcher can be configured to detect pending restarts as much as once per day, in other words, seven times per week. When a pending restart is detected a configurable countdown is initiated that would normally be set to x number of hours. The user is then informed about the pending restart by a dialog window in the middle of the screen and then continuously with toast notifications until the countdown reaches 0 and a forced reboot is initiated. The countdown timer to the forced restart is configurable but cannot be changed by the user. The user will not be able to schedule the restart via RebootWatcher.
- Reboot Watcher is packaged as a stand-alone MSI
