  • Jag,

    A little more information would be helpful. Is this computer on a domain? Is the folder or file you are trying to access on a network drive? Or is the drive local to the machine? If it is local to the machine, is it a shared drive? What action are you trying to complete? Have you looked in task manager to make sure there isn't a program or process running that is related to this file? Details!!!

    Please check this thread, follow the suggestions posted already:

    In Windows 7 getting error "the action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program"

    Best solution is a little diffcult for us to determine, as there could be different reasons causing this issue and we are lacking the detailed information to offer a better solution.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards
