No, because many setup routines have to reboot before they
can finish - usually because some file or process they are
trying to replace is 'in use' - and rebooting allows them
to clean up properly. That is the reason you should never
empty your temp folder until immediately after a reboot.
Don't get too hung up on files in the TEMP folder, just get
into the habit of emptying it when Windows first loads; this
isn't necessary EVERY time, just regularly.
