SQL Server 2005 CTP – Pending reboot error

I was installing SQL Server 2005 CTP with VS 2005 Beta 2 and the following error appeared repeatedly. During the System Configuration Check the installation reports an error on the Pending Reboot Requirement.  Even when I would restart my machine the error would reappear.  Turns out my antivirus software was interfering with the installation process by holding on to certain temp files and registry keys.  The following link shows how I resolved the issue on my machine.  Also, check out VS 2005 Team System’s blog for common symptoms and resolutions for most installation issues.
