Windows 7: Axcrypt doesn't clear closed file from memory

Axcrypt doesn't clear closed file from memory

I've been using Axcrypt for years without any issues, until I tried using it with Windows 7 64-bit. When I double-click an encrypted file and get the Axcrypt window asking for my passphrase, I check both boxes to retain the passphrase for reuse during the session. If I then close the file and later try to reopen it, I would expect Axcrypt to just reopen the file for me. Instead, Axcrypt gives me a messagebox, "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. You, or someone else, have it open already. Do you want to try opening the file as read-only instead?" But the file is closed! The only way I can reopen the file is to go into Task Manager, kill Axcrypt, and then double-click the file. This restarts Axcrypt and asks me for my passphrase again before reopening the file.It's a real pain if this a file I need periodically all day.

BTW, I have no problem with non-Axcrypt files.

Has anyone else seen this issue, and do you know how to correct it? Thanks, all.
