Installer requires restart

I have a windows 2003 SBS server and want to install the iOmega REV 120 drivers. Whenever I try to install them I get a message "you have made changes that require a restart" and the install process will not continue.

Somehow the installer things there are pending restart, but there are not. All windows updates have been done and of cause, I did several restarts.

Any idea how an install wizard knows that a restart is required and refused to continue until the flag is gone?
