Unable to rename music folders

This problem has been with me a while and really drives me mad sometimes.

I try to change the folder name and it reports that I cant as the folder or file is open in another program. Ive no idea what program because Ive not listed to it since rebooting the machine. I tend to use winamp rather than wmp.
