I want to enable restore restart prompt option.

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

After installing some critical software the system asks to restart the system.

But I have disabled the prompt option.

Hence I can't restore the registry.

Any one can help me to bring the restart prompt option back?

I want to enable restore restart prompt option.


In order to bring back the restart prompt in System Configuration Utility. You need to click Start, type in the command below and press ENTER. Another option is to copy the command-line and paste it in the Start search box.

CMD /K REG DELETE "HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftShared ToolsMsConfig" /v NoRebootUI /f

The following message “The operation completed successfully.” appears in the Command Prompt.

You will need to type “EXIT” in order to close the Command Prompt Window.


Another Alternative is to use the registry editor; you can edit the registry to remove the value right away.

The following steps will guide you through:

i) Click Start then type in “Regedit.exe” and press ENTER. A window like the one in the picture below appears.

ii) You then have to expand the folder “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” in the order listed below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Shared Tools MsConfig

iii) Delete the value named “NoRebootUI” in the right pane then exit the Registry Editor.

I hope this helps you bring back the restart prompt.
