When starting MS Excel I get a message that says files are locked for editing by user (myself). Options are "Open Read only, notify when available for editing, or cancel." This happens to files in the XLStart folder only. Other files will open OK.

Ther only way I have found to open excel with the files in XLStart is to reboot the computer.

I read somewhere about checking the Task Manager for processes running and found that Excel.exe was running even after closing excel prefioulsy.

What will cause the Task Manager to show that Excel is running when it is not? At least not running visibly.
