Virus Scan Forces System Restart Too Often

About every two days, the virus scan is prompting me to restart my computer to complete an installation. This is too frequent for me. What can I do about it?

RE: Virus Scan Forces System Restart Too Often

What version have you? Is your date and time correct for your locality?

Re: Virus Scan Forces System Restart Too Often

I am new to this, but I have had critical apps force stopped (such as banking apps/financially sensitive) stopped to save memory which was not necessarily due to the fact that I had 100 gigs left out of 128 and One Drive. The part that bothered me the most is I wasn't asked prior and have no idea how long my apps were down. Please if you are going to stop or even consider even touching an app get the owner's consent.
