No, I'm actually saying that apparently *any* antivirus solution which 
does on-access scannning of files randomly breaks creation of files.
This apparently only happens on W2K, as I've never seen it on NT4.

Note that I have personally only observed this behaviour with Norton, 
but my coworkers tell me they have seen the same symptoms with McAfee 
and Norman.
