A pal of mine told me once that the reason that Windows 7 needs to be restarted so much after installing software or anti-virus updates is that there are some system files that are in use while the computer is running and when the software needs to re-write these files it can only do so during reboots. This is why you need to re-boot a PC after software installation. Is my pal correct?
