I get this error code with the following message:-

"The requested operation cannot be performed on a file with a user-mapped section open"


It happens only when i am using a particular program and after I have entered data I try to close and save.

All the data that I have just entered is lost.

I have been using this program happily for years and this has only just started to occur.


The software provider suggested it could be an anti-virus or firewall issue but I haven't made any changes there

unless it has been automatically updated?


I have a Windows 7 OS - and it has been operating /responding very slowly of late.


Any suggestions where to look for the problem?

Hello there, Welcome to Bleeping Computer...


It seems your security settings on a specific program are not proper... in other words, it would help to "take ownership" as it is called on the specific program.


Please find the specific file/folder of the program you are trying to run... C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). Once you find it, please follow this tutorial.


Let me know how this goes, please. :)

Other posibilities for this error are


Having more than one instance of a program running..check that isnt the case,and if it is close it and reboot


AVG Antivirus will cause this error sometomes...if your using AVG add the program to the AVG scan exeptions list


Locked dll files will cause this issue...find the locked file and delete i guess.
