Windows 7: Can't rename folders...

Can't rename folders...

So I'm trying to rename my music folders, and I'm having an issues where it tell me no, that the folder is being used by another program. I've rebooted, disabled indexing, and no joy. There are no programs running that have anything to do with these folders.

As a kicker, changing the view of the folder will often allow me to rename a folder but then it goes stupid on me when I try to rename another folder. A rinse and repeat works but really this is just counter-productive.

Between this and another issue I'm about to post in a new thread, I'm starting to hear Steve Jobs' siren song calling me. That is not a good thing!

Try using Unlocker, and try scanning your system

Download Unlocker 1.9.0 - FileHippo.com

yes, it's really annoying when that happens...winamp used to do it to me a lot. but seems ok now.

this page may help you 'unlock' the folder...

please let us know if it works.

*edit* beaten to it!

although you don't 'scan your system' - you right-click the folder in question...

Ummmmm, Houston, we have a problem. . . article says: "Unlocker runs on Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista (not supported on Windows XP 64 or Vista 64)." And what about Windows 7?
