Q. You are prompted to restart Windows Server 2003 after you apply a hotfix even though you have HotPatching enabled?

When HotPatching is enabled on a server, you do not have to restart the computer after you apply a security update that supports HotPatching.

Microsoft has indentified HotPatching compatibility issues with:

• Proventia Desktop Agent
• Bull Guard Suite v6

NOTE: It is likely that you will experience HotPatching compatibility issues with some software from ISS (Internet Security System).
