When I try to rename a folder, I get an error saying:
windows 7 the action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open another program.

When I open the task manger, there is nothing locking this file. I have rebooted. This is the user profile for another user on the workstation. I am thinking it has to do with the latter.

Thank you,

I've experienced that as well.

In my case, I just logged on as that user, and changed the
name.

Check to see if there is a password on the user account, or that
you have "admin" control.

Hope this was helpfull

Try disabling the Indexing service and see if that solves the
problem (Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services,
double click on Indexing and click on the Stop button). If it
works, you can set Indexing's startup type to Disabled. I turn
Indexing off on all my XP systems without problems.

XP wants to index every file in a folder whenever that folder is
accessed. If there are a lot of files, large files or a corrupt file
in that folder, the indexing can take virtually forever. In the
case of a corrupt file, XP will probably not be able to index it
but will never stop trying. While this indexing is going on, the
file/folder is "in use" by the Indexing service.

Aslo, you can try to rename in safe mode.
