I have just downloaded some video files from my digital camcorder
when i try to rename the file i get the following
"The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program"
Even after a reboot and no other programs running i get the same message.

Im running Vista Ultimate
the video files are .avi

See if you can rename them in Safe Mode.

is the camcorder still plugged in?
if so, remove it and reboot and see what happens?

Tried it in safe mode, I get the same message
I also unplugged the camcorder.
Rebooted several times.
