Default Re: restart

the ones that don't make you restart don't change any system files so there is no need for it to restart. FOr the ones that make you resart ther is no way around this. sometimes you can just log off and log back in and it will be fine but it's better to do a full restart.

Well, whenever you restart you clear out the ram bceause ram is only active when there is electrcity so it clears the ram and thus gives you a "fresh start" off whatever you were installing. You have to restart probably because the program manufacturer wants you to have clean ram to have a smooth working pc without left over installation crap still on your ram. That's my take on it...

Is it also not something to do with the programs putting information into Windows registry?
