I've had many files locked using Windows 7 without my permission. I don't know why it happens. It usually says Access Denied. I'll give you one way to unlock a file in your Documents. If it doesn't work you will have to keep trying using different settings in Properties. ---- --------- Access Denied How to take control and open a file when it says Access Denied. Right click the file - properties - Security Tab - Everyone - (If everyone is not their, than add it) Advance - Everyone - Change Permissions - Edit - Check mark Boxes for Allow - OK - Apply - OK - OK - OK By clicking all OK you close and than the Settings take effect. This works for single files. ------------ Some file are harder to unlock. I've had them locked even on my Exterior Hard Drive.
