This hasn't been fixed yet, I assume? If I wait for an unknown amount
of time, it will work.

If your action is to delete the file or folder, you may
get the free program Unlocker available here :

I actually came up with a work around. The folders I was trying to
move were on a network drive and an XP machine. I just used
TeamViewer and moved/deleted the folders with no problem from the XP
machine.

Thanks

BTW I think the error is caused by Win7 having a thumbnail file open
somehow. I would love to find out how to keep Win7 from creating the
thumbnail file in the first place.

Did you try Folder Options - View - Files and Folders - Check 'Always
show Icons, never Thumbnails'.

I will give that a shot.

There are more extreme options, such as using regsvr32 to unregister
one or more DLLs. And that will stop the thumbnails as well.
