asp page edit the code and then try to save it they
receive an error.

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

If I reboot the server it breaks the lock. If I reboot the
client it breaks the lock. The only thing that has changed
is their OS from Windows 2000 to XP. The application they

In about 99% of the cases I've seen this error I've had to recycle the
aspnet_wp process because it will sometimes lock a file I'm trying to edit.
Open up Task Manager in the processes tab find the Process named
aspnet_wp.exe select it and end process... the aspnet_wp.exe will
immediately respawn and you'll be good to go.
