Hey there. I wonder what is causing this. I have a file that I want to move to another folder, but I get an error message that says the file is being used by another process. This has been going on for days, and I shut down my computer every night, so I don't understand how that process could still be using the file. I even tried to delete it via a command prompt, but no luck. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Summarah

There is any easy way to fix this, break the link between the file and the process. A great program for doing that with is UnLocker

Hope this helps.
