I’ve previously used Zen Cart which also uses a web based installer. Afterwards, it’s necessary to remove some install files to prevent users from reinstalling your software. Does this need to be done with Magento? If so, which files need to be removed?

You shouldn’t need to remove any files. Just make sure to reset the permissions if you had to chmod 777 before upgrading (depends on server configuration).
