Did you find the reason in the meantime? If not, it's an empty file whose name indicates its purpose. Just delete it; and check the access rights of the BOINC user, perhaps it hasn't sufficient rights to delete the file.

It sometimes happens that the RebootPending.txt file in the BOINC Programs (C:\Program Files\BOINC\ or C:\program Files (x86)\BOINC\) directory gets stuck there.

By the way, perhaps time to update to 7.0.64? It's the new recommended.
