Well, I guess one can never be 100% certain. However, other than A/V software,
I can't imagine what could be holding any of the files open. I'll run some
tests again with the A/V software disabled, but I'm not hopeful.

But, let's assume for a minute that the A/V software really does turn out to be
the culprit. Permanently disabling it is not an option. The corporate police
get pretty cranky when people try to do that. Right now, I don't even have
enough control of the client to tell it to omit certain directories, even
though the server is in my domain and I'm the domain admin. What are my options
at that point?
