    Odd msg whilst starting, 2 days till installation ends!

    I put Windows 8 onto my PC yesterday, pretty good so far, but this afternoon I now see a weird message as it boots up:

    'Your PC will restart in 2 days to finish the installation'

    I have known PCs restart immediately upon adding new stuff but why 2 days??? Is everything OK?

    Have other ppl had this?

    Might be they are non critical updates that need to install at some stage.

    Perhaps it is for always on users - just letting you know if you don't restart in the nearish future, then it will do it automatically.

    I don't know why they chose 2 days.

I'm sure this has been addressed here, but I couldn't figure out what search terms to use. I installed the Win8 consumer preview on a spare laptop quite a while ago and didn't read the fine print closely enough to realize that I would not be able to revert to Win 7 at the end of the trial. Win 7...
