[Solved]error: System Changes Require Reboot

While installing SQL Management studio on my Windows 7 computer I came across the error “Pending System Changes Require Reboot” . I restarted the system but again same error came up. I did some research on Google and found this solution.

1. Locate the registry :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\

2. Delete registry value “PendingFileRenameOperations”

3. Look for the same registry value at these locations and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentSet001\Control\SessionManager\

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentSet002\Control\SessionManager\

Note: Backup the registry before doing any change and do the registry changes at your own risk
