I am unable to update several Windows 2000 SP4 Pro Workstations due to 2 in use DLL files. OLEAUT32.DLL and Kernel32.DLL, this are critical machines that stay up 24 hours a day. Is there maybe a process I can run to stop or halt these for a couple of seconds in order to update? Or does someone have any other ideas?

Not that I know of.

I would reboot, and run the updates with no applications running.

You always need to schedule down time for maintenance, even on critical machines.
 
I hope this helps !
