Ever had such an annoying message given by Windows?
It has many other flavors:
Cannot delete file: Access is denied
There has been a sharing violation.
The source or destination file may be in use.
The file is in use by another program or user.
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
Unlocker is the solution!
1. Simply right click the folder or file and select Unlocker
2. If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will appear
3. Simply click Unlock All and you are done!

Ok with "Unlocker" utility but there is something easiest and more generic to do, before that.
Just turn off the windows explorer options (top left button), to not viewing the "Details" and the "Preview" panes.
It works fine for me, with exactly the same "crazy" problem!
Just tell us if you try it with success!

If you did then the Unlock should be in your window when you right click on the file.
