    This has been a much needed feature! Ever since the begginging of NT (I think???) there were no options to restart like this.

    Are you sure it's only after updating?

    If you disable UAC using the registry method (changing "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cu rrentVersion\Policies\System" to 0), the Metro Apps cease to function.

    Unfortunately, SetPoint fails to function properly once the registry setting is returned to its default "1".
