I am getting an error message on many files I try to download

Error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

What Process? is this on my computer? how do I tell what process and do i just delet the torrent and start over. is this a corrupt file or is it a file that bit torrent wants us to pay to down load since they are a pay by file download site??

uTorrent is a free-to-use program. So I don't know about "pay by file download site".

You probably have a file indexing program running on your computer that's locking files so other programs can't use them while it's checking/indexing them.

Roxio and Nero are REALLY BAD about doing this, though both can be configured to not index files.

Another problem-causer is media player programs -- they don't just lock files, they change the file's contents, making you no longer have 100% download files as they are now damaged!

iTunes and Microsoft's Media Player 7+ are bad about doing this. :(

NOTE: NONE of this software is viruses or trojans. They're all commercial software that simply doesn't work well in a multitasking environment. (where multiple programs running at once)

Thanks Switeck, I went in and messed with Roxio's Media Center that monitors that krap in Roxio, why would some one want to auto monitor this any way it should do a search when and only wen you access their program expessually it it interfears with the importing of data arrgh, any way I disabled monitoring from the file I have my downloads going to and it seems to be working fine, Thanks again
