My O/S is Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Occasionally while working in Explorer, and I need to delete a file or folder, I will get an error message that says something to the effect of “ request cannot be completed because a file or folder (it gives the name of the file or folder) is open in another program and must be closed first” then I am given the option of retry or cancel. My question is how do you know where it’s open? It doesn’t say which program it is opened in.

Try Unlocker, it will normally tell you what program and also help you delete the object.
One of the useful Tools in our Freeware DB
