Question about Computers & Internet

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the application in question. If that does not resolve the issue, try installing the software in another computer. If it works there, then the issue lies with your operating system in your original computer.

Excel may have "Ignore other applications" selected. See THIS Microsoft Knowledgebase Article.
Try going to Excel Options; Advanced tab; and under the 'General' heading: uncheck the box that says: Ignore other Applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).

The software knows whether the file is in use by creating a "lock file". When you "fix" a locked file it usually means the software deletes the file that prevented access your file/document and not that it dropped the user currently using that file instead of you. The software only allows you to fix a locked file, because rarely the software makes a mistake and does not clear the lock file. While it assumes you've verified you're right and it's wrong. In my experience, the file is actually in use either by a system process, through a remote account, or by a user you just couldn't locate. The software locking up when you force the deletion of the lock file is always the result of a read/write error. This is usually a good indication two sources are in fact trying to utilize the same file.
