Additional Information

When a user associated Application needs to update a locked system file, the Novell Application Launcher creates a file in the users TEMP directory, like NAL2.tmp and in the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager the key PendingFileRenameOperations with the value of the temp file and the new file. When the workstation reboots it copies the file. The copied file will however get the rights as they where at the source location (the users TEMP).
