[R] Memory R and Windows2000

when using:  rm(list=ls(all=TRUE))  and gc() command , and looking at the
used by Rgui.exe  in window2000 there is no change.
this is strange . 
Actually I need to be sure that memory is given back to the system
because the users of the application I wrote under R are opening and closing 
big files of data; 

can I rely on the gc() function under win2k?
