Use this option when you must restart the client computer without delay. Situations that may require an immediate restart include malware remediation, schedule urgency, and proactive protection against an imminent threat.
Use this option if there is no immediate threat or need to restart the client computer at a particular time. This option is a good choice when you can safely wait to restart the computer as part of the normal user routine. In some cases, you may be required to restart the client computer to start a service. You receive a notification when this requirement is present.

Up to this time:
Use this option when an immediate restart may affect work, or when you can safely delay the restart. Be sure that you understand the implications of delaying a restart when an active threat is present.

Use this option to avoid conflicts with other scheduled tasks and to control client restart behavior. Restart randomization lets the clients restart at different times within a range of one to eight hours. This option is useful in virtualized environments to alleviate hardware overload. This overload can occur when all virtual machines that are hosted on a server restart at the same time.
