File locked by another user

P: n/a
I am using Access 2000 and 2002. I use Access only to create the database
design. Then I move the MDB file to a server where an application connects to
it using ASP.Net.

Occasionally I will create a circumstance where I get "file locked by another
user". I figured out this happens when I overlook a case where the datareader
does not get closed and the connection does get closed. The file then is
locked and the only way to unlock it is to reboot. I am unable to open the
database with ADO or from Windows Explorer. Rebooting clears the file and the
file can be opened again.

Is there a way to clear whatever setting the OS looks at without rebooting?
