If they need to make some changes to some files, registry entries, being in use, it can be done only on reboot.

Yep. As Broni said. If a file is in use, its hard to make changes to it without crashing, or messing up the system.

Some things only load on boot ups, aswell. So its possible you won't get the full functions until a restart even on programs that DON'T require a restart.
