When I try to move a series of mkv files from my download folder to my movie folder it says they can't be moved because they are open in windows explorer.

I get the same message after restarting.

Other files move from downloads to movies just fine, I am stumped.

Folder Options - View Tab - put a tick in "always show icons, never thumbnails". OKAY and exit.
Close and open Windows Explorer and see if that helped.

If that doesn't work, download and use Unlocker: http://download.cnet.com/Unlocker/3000-2248_4-10493998.html

Thanks Allen!

What a PITA that was. The first thing didn't work. Then I downloaded and installed Unlocker and didn't see it in the right click menu.

It's because I have windows x64 so I went to Total Commander 32 bit. It was in the menu there so I moved the files.

It left the old ones and wouldn't let me delete it until I restarted again.

I'm glad that's over, thanks for the useful program.
