OK, but most of the time I cannot shut down all applications because one 
application is monitering a task which I am running on the server. If I 
kill the monitering application then I have to redo the task all again. The 
task can take 2 days on the server before it is finished. I do some java 
development in the mean time. However now I am running into the directory 
locking problem.

Which servicepack on windows 2000 are you running?

Yes, Bill what was it again? Trustworthy computing?.
