I can deploy the package and it will install on the users machine but still requires a reboot to finish the installation(it will look like IE6, no tabbed browsing etc...until reboot). Is there anyway to force the reboot after the Software Installation(through GPO) of IE7? I know in a script I could use /forcereboot but what if I am using "Software Installation" through GPO? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty sure there's no option to force reboot in the software installation via GPO. The only options available to you are to either use a script to /forcereboot or gpupdate/force or alternatively, don't use software installation but instead use msiexec which has a reboot option:

I used the Admin toolkit for IE7 and rebuilt the MSI. I used reg hacks via GPO to do the rest. Thanks!
