I've been using AVG 2012 Free Edition for a couple weeks. Today, I keep getting an AVG pop-up on my screen, telling me the Update needs a restart. I've now restarted my computer 3 times, but I'm still getting the pop-up.

When I click on my AVG icon on my desktop, and click updates, it tells me
"Update completed successfully. The Update needs a restart (Anti-Virus definitions updates are still possible)."

At the same time, the top of the AVG 2012 screen tells me "You are protected. All Security Features are working correctly and are up to date"

Should I be concerned about the update that's popping up?

Why is the program still asking me to reboot/restart?
