In my W2K,SP2, WINNT\SYSTEM32 folder there is a msjava.dll file version 3805 that I want to replace with msjava.dll version 3802 because this is the version required by a certain application. I cannot rename, (if renamed, it replaces itsself)deleteor overwrite this file. If you delete the file it does not complain, but it does not go away. Any ideas out there?

It probably does not go away because of the Windows File Protection. If any system files are deleted, W2k will replace them. Either from the Dllcache folder or the w2k 2000 cd. It also may be taking it from the I386 folder. Try renaming the file if it is in the I386 folder, then delete the file. When the file protection can not find the file, it will prompt you for a location. Hopefully you can cancel this operation, and go on your merry way. (I have never tried it) Then copy the dll you want to use to the appropriate folder. Hope it helps.
