Yes - I tried it but didn't work and am a bit scared of playing too much with the registry that's why am hoping for a script.

Well I'm unfamilair with disabling the opportunistic locking, but that article should work.  Just be careful testing.

Scripting can be done fairly easy.

See reg.exe /? for syntax

Create a batch file with the following:

Rem Start of batch
reg add "\\%1\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MRXSmb\Parameters" /v OplocksDisabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
Rem end of batch

Just save the file as locking.bat

Call it in the format (Just change Target computer to the machine you want to change):
c:\locking TargetComputer

The settings should take effect after the machine is reboot.
