I am trying to install Oracle patch to Oracle I keep getting error messages that say some files that need to be changed are in use by another application. I have stopped all Oracle services. Anyone know how to tell which files are being accessed? I'm on Windows 2000 Server.

It is possible that there is still a service running from the ORACLE_HOME that you are trying to patch. On occasion, service properties are modified to restart when they fail or are shut down. If you right-click on a service and choose Properties, then choose the Recovery tab, you will see there are options to take certain actions if the service fails. Check to see that these are set to "Take no action," otherwise they may start up on their own even though you have successfully shut them down.
