Folder In Use (wont allow me)

Hello, I'm having a problem where the Folder In Use Error that pops up, but all the other files are closed. I just don't know how to disable the Folder In Use Error that always pops up. It always annoys me, otherwise I might get KL (Keylogged) with viruses.

Thanks!

Some program has a handle on your folder. A reboot should fix that.

It is absolutely ridiculous someone would need to reboot to delete a folder. Windows needs to stop this weird, unhelpful, annoying, buggy permissions issue.
