When installing or updating a VSIX, the user is often prompted to "Restart Now" which is a terrifying proposition because there's really no way of knowing what Visual Studio means.

Does it mean restart Visual Studio? If so that's annoying but not a big deal.
Does it mean restart the Vsix? If so, that's so trivial why bother asking.
Does it mean restart Windows? If so, then no: my OS is busy doing things I need it to do.

Not knowing is a punishment to users of Visual Studio. The text on the button should be clear and concise.
