Windows® Restarts After Installing Software
What are the reasons due to which Windows would restart after installing software?
When a software is installed in Windows, then you need to provide the location for installation. After that, you might be asked to reboot the computer. You might choose from either of these options. ‘I want to restart my computer now' or 'No, I will restart my computer later'. There are many reasons for the restart. The restarting helps in closing file that is currently open. After that, you will be able to close all running applications in the computer. The Windows installer might easily clean unwanted files in the computer after reboot. So rebooting enables the computer to install the software successfully. At some situation, you would encounter issues like Windows keeps on restarting after installing software. This might be due to virus present in the software, problem with hard drive etc.
The following are some of the tips to fix restart problems associated with Windows OS:
- Errors in hard disk
- Check Processor and Fan
Errors in hard disk
With use, the hard disk might be affected with bad sectors. The bad sectors are caused due to improper shut down and with voltage fluctuations on the Power supply. In order to resolve these errors, you need to perform an error check. The error check might help to resolve the issues caused due to this as it checks the particular drive for bad sectors and if there is any data in these bad sectors, it might move to a good sector. In this way, the data would be secured and the performance of the computer is also enhanced.
Some malware make computing impossible by restarting abruptly. There are various kinds of viruses. You need to remove these viruses from the computer to run it properly. In order to resolve this issue, install antivirus software in the computer. Antivirus software might detect these malware and remove it from the computer as well as the software that you are going to install. You need to update the antivirus program to make sure that your computer is free from any malwares.
Windows might restart suddenly after installation of software due overhating of the system. The cooling of the processor is done by the FAN and the heat sink. Check if the processor fan is running. Make sure that the FAN is properly installed and stick to the surface of the processor. If you get a message from BIOS when you reboot your computer saying that there was processor overheating then, wait for sometime and then start.
