Trying to install Visual Studio but I keep getting a message saying that
another program is waiting for windows to reboot and that I must reboot
before starting the installation of Visual Studio. Obviously I have tried
rebooting. I have also uninstalled all previous versions including beta and
the .net framework.
What can I do to get this "need to reboot" message to go away?

It appears that there may be an incomplete installation pending for VS or
another program.
