Need warning of open files on XP shutdown

    How do I get a warning to appear when shutting down XP Home - if
    another user on the LAN has files open? (This was standard with Win
    98).

    Do I have to make a shutdown script / batch file to check for these?
    I don't think XP Pro warns either.
    Or is there a service that does this? - I shut down a lot of services
    I didn't appear to need.

    LAN is using TCP/IP protocol only. All users running as Administrator.

    Thanks,
    Ross
