War not updating

We just upgraded to Tomcat 6.0.18 from Tomcat 4.
All the wars were redone in my local Tomcat 6.0.18 and sent to the server and everything worked where I saw all the apps working on the new version of Tomcat.
Now after we tried to update an app by sending in an updated war file, it wouldnt take and the current app cant be updated.
We tried deleting the old app folder and war and then loading the new war and stopping and restarting Tomcat. But it still shows the old app info. I am putting the wars in the webapps directory (C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps) just like I use to do with Tomcat 4.

Please advise why the new wars wont update the current apps located in Tomcat 6?
I agree. Here's the link:
