Also why do they need to have a restart - what exotic feature of the OS are they using that needs imbedding in the running code?
I had none of the problems you describe. Both Viewer 3 and Updater informed me that there was a new version of the updater software. This was on three different PCs (XP, 7Pro & 8)

Only the Win8 PC asked to be restarted, but that seems to do that whenever i make a cup of tea...
