How to avoid windows REBOOT after any operation required restart ?

Issue :

Today, I decided to clear my desktop. I am currently running with 2 SQL server instances with different names & versions & are not required now.

I start uninstallation of SQL server but after one uninstallation, second uninstallation gives errors of “Restart Computer”.

It’s very difficult to restart computer again & again when you are doing several things in parallel.


Resolution :

Here, I go for shortcut. I have changed the registry value of current session manager to avoid reboot.

Go to Registry Location : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSessionManager & Clear the entry of string PendingFileRenameOperations.


After change, I click on rerun to check status again for uninstallation & it works.


Note :

1) Its recommended to reboot system, whenever required.

2) Please be careful, while doing any changes to registry.

Hope this help
