I see the reboot question, but never do it -and I believe it only happens If
you installed and havent done a reboot sometime between then and the

Its occurring because the msys2 part of the install registering of the

cant uninstall that file - hence the message on rebooting - I believe we can
disable that reboot option, however the files will still be there.
