Hi guys!

This is an update message about our problem! Windows 2000 SP4 didn't help
us! :-(

I upgraded our trouble Windows 2000 Server with SP4 and the problem still
here! The another Windows 2000 Server received SP4 too and there is no
problem deleting folders. It never show the message: Error Deleting File or
Folder. There has been a sharing violation. The source or destination file
may be in use."

I am still looking around a solution and until I find it I will keep using
the amazing WhoLockMe (described below).

Thanks in advance,

I am back again with Windows 2000 Sharing Violation Problem... Let's explain
it again... :)

We have two Windows 2000 Servers with SP3. One of them are presenting a
well-known message, when we try to delete a folder:

"Error Deleting File or Folder. Cannot delete "folder": There has been a
sharing violation. The source or destination file may be in use."

I made a research through Newsgroups around the Internet and I found that
explorer.exe is locking that folder. People outhere tell us to restart
Windows and delete the folder, after logon.

As an workaround to prevent a restart, I found a great free utility called
WhoLockMe (http://www.dr-hoiby.com/WhoLockMe/) for Win2K. WhoLockMe is a
little extension for your Microsoft Explorer. It permeets you to list all
the process locking your selected file. So I started to use it to unlock any
folder handled by explorer.exe, just killing its process.

I want to know if there is any solution for this problem. I think it start
after we apply Win 2K SP3, but the other Win 2K Server did not presenting
this problem. Indeed, I am suspecting of our Microsoft Office 2000
Professional (brazilian portuguese) and of our Norton Antivirus 2001.

I want to know if that problem is the same described in Microsoft's
Knowledge Base Article 323045
(http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q323045) or the
older NT4.0 Article 165387
(http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q165387).

I think this problem only will solve with Win 2K SP4. But, before this,
anyone can help me?
