    When working on files and saving. Sometimes when I go to through the
    file away I get an error saying that it is still in use when I know
    that it is not.

    IF these are files you were editing in Word and Word is still open, you
    might get such a message. Try quitting Word.

    Welcome to the NetBIOS OPLOCK. Wait for it to time out, then you'll be
    able to kill the file. A "net files" works on any PLCP (OS/2)
    requester/server (NT is a good example) and you'll see what's open...
