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


Recommended Posts

Yes, I had a Error: The process cannot access the file because is being used by another process error. I didn't have any issue downloading a few files on the same session; then this one stopped at 97%. I don't have Google Desktop, MSN Desktop, WinZIP Quickfind, Roxio Media Manager or Nero Scout installed, neither any of the incompatible software listed in the Help. Please tell me what should I do. I just hope I don't have to start all over again! Anyway, I hope this helps:

HijackThis and ProcessExplorer logs edited out


Apparently solved; this is what I did:

• I disabled the Windows Content Indexing Service in the downloads directory (directory context menu > Properties > General tab > Advanced button > uncheck «For fast searching, allow Indexing service to index this folder» > OK > OK)

• I went back to µTorrent and resumed the job (job context menu > Start)

It seems to be downloading normally again (with tremendous peaks and valleys, though --probably unrelated). Note that I really can't say that the Windows indexing service was what caused the error; I guess it could have been my media player silently going through the files to index them (I took the downloads directory out of the «watched» list, just in case). I'm posting this in case is of any help for someone. Anyway, I appreciate any additional advice or comment.

You are right, I shouldn't have take them from my report; I thought they served no purpose anymore. Here is what I had posted (that is, before solving the problem):
