Error message: The process cannot access the file...


Recommended Posts


I just started using uTorrent, v. 1.8.1. When I load a torrent file, it begins to download but I quickly get the following error message.

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

Please help. The files will not download. I've tried forced restarting but quicly get this message again.

a) get HijackThis from trendsecure.com, run it, view the log, and post the contents here

B) get Process Explorer from sysinternals.com, run it, Ctrl+D (to show the lower DLL pane), select the µTorrent process from the list, Ctrl+S (and save the list somewhere you'll find easily -- like the Desktop), then post the contents of the saved process list in the .txt file here
