Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can copy over a file to users 
machines with them still logged on?

A new piece of software was installed on their machines this morning but a 
DLL was missing in the package and now I need to copy over the DLL to 
their c:\windows\system32 directory so they can use the software today 
without rebooting...

I know the desktop policy is refreshed every now and then so is it 
possible to integrate the copy into that?

We did initially send the DLL in the login script this morning but the 
users dont have access to write to this folder as its locked down.
