Why does a shutdown-startup not count as a reboot for after a ESET Endpoint Security update

Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

Recommended Posts


After i deployed a EES update via the ESET Protect control panel a lot of computers need a reboot. That is fine but a lot of people shut their computer off when they go home and when they are at the office again they boot their pc but that does not count as a reboot that EES is requiring. 
Is there a reason for this? Is it needed to really do a reboot with the Windows reboot button?

Thanks in advance

That's because you probably have fast startup enabled. If so, shutdown in the Start menu is not a real shutddown but rather a kind of hibernation. That said, the OS doesn't start loading from scratch.

As Marcos said above, it's more of a hibernation/deep sleep with default Windows settings.


Control Panel>Change to Large/Small Icons>Power Options>Choose What Power Buttons Do

From here change the Power Button to Shut Down if not already, then as Marcos said Turn off Fast Startup.
