Q: The action can't be completed bec the folder/file is in use by another

When I try to delete a few videos on my desktop it will not allow me by saying that they are use by another program. The other program has been uninstalled a little while back so I am not sure how to fix. I've checked several places and it's not on my computer any longer. How do I get this stuff deleted

This is kind of driving me a bit bonkers now, as I am trying to organize the files on my system, and am consistently butting heads against this problem. It always seems to be the last file I highlight. In other words.. I have two directories open on the screen, and am simply looking to drag files/folders from one directory to another. To do this, you almost always have to highlight the folder you want to move, and doing this seems to put a lock on that folder. If I highlight more folders, it seems to be ok, except for the last one I highlight will always fail to copy.

Any way to prevent windows from locking files in this way?

Hi,

I'm getting this message when I try to transfer folder to another location on my hard drive.
"The action cannot be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program."

The problem is I don't know what program has the folder open. How do I find out which program it is so I can close it and move the folder to another location?

When trying to rename a new folder in Windows 7, the user gets the message "the action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program." We have tried turning off indexing for the parent folder. We can delete the folder. We just can't rename it. It has 'Read-only' attribute. Any suggestions?

When I try to move a folder into another folder (sub-folders into the main "MY DOCS" folder, I get the error message: "The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open. Close the file and try again."

NO, no other folders are open; went to task manager and made sure. No backup running. I've tried a web search others have had this issue. The suggestion was to empty the temp folder, but this didn't help.

Any advice? This happens for ANY folder I try to dump into the main one.

The action can?t be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program. I suspect that my anti virus, Norton 360, is stopping me from deleting a specific folder, it happens only in one specific folder.
When I restart my computer, it takes time to the regular background tasks to "wake up", so I can delete it once the computer turns on, but then something stops me from deleting the folder. I am not sure if it is Norton 360, or another problem.
Would it be a Malware?

not positive what it could be ,anything knowing computers .
to see if its Norton 360. disconnect from intern ,disable Norton360 temporally ,how to do so will be in the settings of Norton , after its disable try deleting file.

just found this in google ,how to disable Norton temporally .

Try right clicking on the 360 icon in your notification area. You should be able to disable protection features for a specified time. Remember that you are unprotected while doing this, so you should disconnect from the Internet while doing this. Remember to reset the protection when you are finished.

hi guys,

every single time I try to rename a folder the boring message "The action can't be completed because the folder or the file is in use" appears even if apparently neither the folder or a file in it is in use.

What I have to do is: Task Manager > Explorer.exe > End Process > File > New Task > Explorer.exe and I am able to rename the folder.

It is a really boring process and I find this process really stupid. The folders I am trying to rename are full of pictures, I think it is something related to the Thumbs files.

Anybody of you have the same issue? Any possible solution?

Thanks

First, a bit of background. I had just recently installed my Logitech Webcam software, and later on today I've deleted the installer to the recycle bin and am trying to empty the recycle bin. When I do this, I get this message:http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/7600/capturerhf.jpgFirstly, why is this happening in the first place? It's simply an installer? The application itself has installed fine and I should have no problem deleting the installer, right?What does it mean, "because file is open in Application Experience"? What on earth is this?Also, why is the file named "lws201_full.exe", yet in that image I have provided, it's called "$RX8JXFZ.exe"? Also worth noting that the file is 0 bytes in the image I provided, yet the original file itself is 114 MB . Say what?!The file deletes itself fine if I cancel or try again, but I still don't understand why this happens. Thanks so much for your assistance in clarifying this issue for me.

Whenever I try to move or rename files (or anything else that would change something about it), I frequently get the message "The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program." The thing is, it's not open in any program.

It usually happens immediately after it was open, though. It also usually happens with movie files. So, I'll watch a movie file, close WMP and try to change the filename, and it'll give this message. I have to wait for about two or three minutes before I can change it. It's very frustrating to have to wait every time I need to change a file. Is there a way to fix this?

I have a couple of Word 7 files which can't be moved, deleted or renamed. Any attempt results in a message: This action cannot be completed as it is in use by another program. It is not in use by any program I am aware of. When I open the file, it says (Read Only) in the title bar but the properties dialogue boxes are not checked as read only. Of course, I can't save any changes to the file unless I go to 'save as' but that still leaves me with an undeletable/uneditable file. I am using Vista Ultimate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:This action cannot be completed...

Unless you're particularly interested in the mechanics of why this might be happening, I'd suggest booting to safe mode (press the F8 key early during Windows startup) and moving or deleting the files from there. You probably won't have trouble deleting the files that way.

G'day, I'm running Windows 7 Home premium on a Dell Inspiron laptop.

When I am trying to organise my music files and folders in my music Library I randomly get this error:

The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.

But there can be nothing else open, no media player, (neither WMP or Media Monkey which I usually use), or any other window open at all. This is intermittent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

For example; I just discovered that I have a Chris De Burgh folder with a couple albums in it and another folder titled Chris De Burgh - Greatest Hits. I decided to move the latter into the former and rename the latter to simply Greatest Hits. At first it wouldn't copy into the Chris de Burgh folder at all and the dreaded error came up. I clicked on another folder, went back and tried again and it worked. After putting the CDB-GH folder into the CDB one I tried to rename it, (without opening it). The action can't be completed blah blah blah. Retry doesn't work. This time I had to close windows explorer and open it again and browse to the folder and rename it.

Sometimes it works first go, sometimes you have to click elsewhere then come back to it, sometimes you have to close explorer, sometimes it simply refuses until I restart the pooter. I've tried deleting everything in the temp folder, (%temp%) but there are files in here which won't delete either coming up with the same message. I guarantee that the f... Read more

Recently an issue has appeared on my laptop, an HP Pvilion G6 running Windows 7 64 bit with SP1 and all latest updates with an Intel Core i5 2.3 processor and 4.Gb RAM.
 
Shortly after booting and arriving at the desktop and before opening any programs a dial up connection window opens with no input from myself, prompting me to choose which service I want to connect to followed soon after by anther window with the title ‘Server Busy’ and the following text. ‘This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy Choose ‘Switch to’ to activate the busy program and correct the problem.’ Beneath this are three buttons, from left to right they’re labelled Switch To… , Retry and Cancel. Cancel is greyed out. Pressing Switch To… opens the start menu, presumably to allow me to select the busy program but there’s no indication of which is the problematic program so I just close the start menu. When the start menu opens the Server Busy window closes briefly but reappears after a second and the loop continues. Pressing the retry button makes the window disappear briefly only to immediately reappear. It seems impossible to get rid of this window.

I keep a file folder on my desktop (my FireFox download folder) that just started exhibiting some strange behavior. Instead of opening up like a civilized folder, with a listing of the files, it opens up in full Windows Explorer. So I looked at the folder properties, and the first thing listed was "Explore" and then "Open" ... If I click "Open" it opens up correctly; but if I just double click the folder icon, it does the default option and give me a nice instance of Windows Explorer ... and I have to mouse click down the tree to get to my list of files.

This is on my laptop which sports a week-old refresh of Windows XP/Home.

Unacceptable !!

Any ideas ??

'Explore' is the default that I always had. Thought that was standard. Aren't the files listed in the right pane?

Want to change it to 'Open'? In Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, File Types. Scroll down to 'Folder'. (Not 'File Folder'). Click, Advanced. Click, 'Open'. Click, 'Set Default'. OK.

When you drag a file to a folder with the mouse, if you are dragging with left button, in one computer it says, copy to "the destination folder", in another computer (one is Home Premium x64, the other is Ultimate x64) it says, again with the left button, move to "the destination Folder.

Is it a difference between Home Premium and Ultimate?
Can a user define which will be the default action when dragging a file to a folder?

P.S. : I know that the right button gives the options to choose.

I then clicked OK and backed out of the rest of the windows.

Hi,
I have been googling this for days now - trying several different suggestions - but cannot find a fix!

I am in the midst of tranferring data from old computer (Windows Vista) to new computer (Windows 7 Pro) and was placing folders/files on network drive to do so. For 95% of the items, it worked like a charm - I would copy onto my new computer and then delete them from network drive.

However I am left with 5 folders with a few files in each that I cannot delete! Error message is:
The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program. Close the file and try again.

I've tried renaming, Unlocker, stopped windows from caching thumbnails, and a few more than I can't even remember!

I am not a computer whiz by any means and am afraid to attempt anymore on my own in case I mess something up!!

Any help would be appreciated - I am all googled out!!!

Hello Guys, this is my first post... I've tried searching but couldn't find it, so if it's repeated I'm sorry.

Well the thing is that when I had XP I could override the default way that a folder opens (open new folder on same window or open each folder on separate window) by pressing ctrl while double clicking, I've tried to find a solution for this ever since Vista beta came out, now I just realized that the difference is in the default action for the folders in XP, in vista the default action is to EXPLORE not to OPEN, so when right click and then ctrl+Open the magic comes back! so I started to research on how to change that default action from explore to open, but nothing.

Thank You in Advance!

I fixed that but it used to open in the same window but doesn't anymore. I have made sure the option to open in the same window is on, but they still open in different windows. How can I make it open in the same window again?

Thanks

AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition (avgas-setup-7.5.1.43.exe)
No other anti-virus software installed prior to problem.

Yesterday, my AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition stopped working. When I try to run the program I get a message saying some files are missing. I tried to "repair" it using the installer file but it didn't work. So I uninstalled it and tried to re-install the progarm. However I got this message

Local machine: installation failed

I uninstalled AVG Anti-Spyware without seeing if it was working or not. Now I can re-install it either

So anyway, I found this forum and followed the 5 steps before posting the log. The Panda scan showed I had a virus, I ran a second scan and it showed that it got rid of the virus. However I still can't install neither AVG Anti-Virus nor Anti-Spyware. I have already installed both ZonedOut and Spywareblaster as per your instructions. Here are the logs:

Windows XP Home.

Someone has been monkeying with the settings and they all deny it, of course.

Instead of a folder opening in Windows Explorer when it is double-clicked, the Windows Search dialog opens--ALL folders are this way.

How do I set the default action on folders to open the folder instead of running Windows Search?
 

A:Set Default Action when Click on a Folder?

Sometimes after adding the right click with the Explorer, the default setting for opening a folder is changed.
To correct this:

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell
Edit the default value to be explorer or none

You can download a reg file to do this automatically at:

Hi,

Copy the text below between the dotted lines, but not the dotted lines themselves. Open Notepad and paste it in. Save the result in a suitable location as folder.reg - making sure that the default .txt extension doesn't appear in the file name.
Double-click on the saved .reg file to merge the contents.
Restart.

Okay. When you double-click on your hard drive or any other folders in My Computer, it opens that drive or folder in the same window of Explorer, right?

When I double-click on a hard drive or folder in my computer, it instead opens a search window. I managed to assign a default action for double-clicking that lets me open the folder or drive in a seperate window, but I can't delete actions that I've tried that don't work. So now, when i right-click on a folder or drive, a bunch of different actions (Such as find, explore, and the ones I made myself) pop up. This happened when I tried to change the icon for drives and folders in the same Edit File Types menu.

In the Edit File Types menu, the options for removing actions or setting the action to browse in the same window are grayed out. So now, I can't set an action to open the folder or drive in the same window, and I can't delete actions that don't work.

Here's how I managed to get the action to open the folder or drive in a seperate window.
1. I went to the Edit File Types menu and selected Drive

2. I clicked on Advanced

3. I clicked on New

4. I selected C:/Windows/Explorer.exe as the program used to perform the action

5. I named the action Explode and set it as default
Now, the window will open in Explorer like it should, but not in the same window. Any help would be appreciated!

Oh I really need help !
Initially I try to change the default icon for FILE FOLDER
I open it on the Control panel > folder options > to the tab of File Types > then I see the FILE FOLDER.
I don't know what I have done, but the result is, if i try to find a file folder, then it will open Windows desktop search.
I try to check on that directory I've mentioned, and I see that if I click on the File Folder, then Advanced button, then I see the Action is only having :
1. Find
2. Open as notebook in OneNote.
There's no option to make it into Open or Explore, I try to make a new command, named explore, but it became even worse, nothing happen.

How do I return this to the default ?

I have amassed hundreds of files that I cannot delete. Generally, the ones that have been on my computer for a long time, I am able to move around, but not to the Recycle Bin and I can't delete them permanently. I've read through hundreds of Google results telling me that I need to turn off or turn on User Account Control, or go into the properties of the file and take ownership of it. Sometimes those techniques (and many others, for example, a forced delete through Command Prompt) work, but only on a few files. Sometimes the problem goes away with a reboot. Sometimes it's as simple as moving it to another directory before deleting it. Sometimes it goes away with time or a whole lot of messing with it. But in the end, I go through enough files each week that I'm left with an inordinate amount that refuse to be deleted.

I originally had UAC off. I figured that there was no point in having it off, so I ended up turning it back on. There has been no difference. Files could not be deleted beforehand, and still, I am unable to delete them now. The same errors come up either way. The only difference is that when UAC is on, there is an extra step before the error where it asks me to continue, as is UAC's purpose.

Going to Properties --> Security and then changing ownership and giving myself full control does nothing. I don't see why it should when I'm the sole user of the computer. Still, I keep trying it and I admit that there are times where... Read more

Hello, all of the sudden I can't open any .exe files, meaning internet, itunes, ect. Each time I click on one, this is the message that pops up, "This file does not have a program associated with it for preforming this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel." Someone else on here has already posted the same problem, and an answer has been given, but the first thing it requires you to do is open up the command prompt, which I cannot do, because I still get the same pop up even for trying to run the cmd. If there is any way to fix this, I would be EXTREMELY grateful.

This is normally caused by a malware infection. Unfortunately it's hard to run any programs when you can't get anything to run.

If you have another PC you can use, download the zip file from the site below, unzip it and copy it to the Windows desktop of the machine with the exe problem. It would be best to do this in Windows safe mode.

Once you have the file on the desktop, boot back into Windows and right click on the file. Select "Merge"

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create and association in the Set Associations control panel"

Hi everyone!
I have been having a problem with my computer for several days now. Opening all programs causes me to recieve this error message. I have to use right click + Run as Administrator to use any of my programs. I have done some forum surfing and tried several recommended techniques for correcting this problem but to no avail. I downloaded the exefix_vista reg file but the very same problem prevents me from merging it (I even tried fixing the reg extension but that failed aswell). I have run the sfc/scannow in command propmt but that came up empty. I would have fresh installed but I am away from home and do not have the means to reinstall vista. I apologize if this post seems in any way redundant but my forum searches have failed me. HELP! PLEASE!

Hello Jimonthy, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Have you already tried this?

If yes, then you might see if you can do a System Restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had this problem.

Hope this helps,

I recently resorted to manual removal of malware via the registry (the malware *is* gone, & is not the issue). However, .exe files no longer work, giving the error message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."

This error is returned even with cmp (opened via Run, cmp.exe, or Command Prompt) and regedit (opened via Run).

The issue I believe was caused by failure to set the (Default) registry values to "%1" %* - instead simply deleting them.


Thus far I have been unable to locate any .com exefix files for Windows 7.

Links to an appropriate exefix file, or instructions for another fix would be greatly appreciated.

I was using a file in OpenOffice Calc about an hour ago. (Many hours spent on it.)

I saved my work every 5 or 6 minutes. And now, I can't find it anywhere.

I got my PC from my Grandson. He broke it so it won't close all the way but it seems to work fine as long as I leave it on my desk. It was clean of files when I got it so it's easy to look everywhere. Not in the Recycle Bin. I have about 12 files in it and some are from 3 days ago so I know that I didn't empty it with the missing file in it.

How in the heck could it disappear? And is it lost forever?

Thank you

I ran Disk Defragmenter on my computer while using mozilla firefox. I closed the browser and reopened it and got the following message:

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."

I tried opening other programs such as Limewire and Internet Explorer, and got the same message. I went to the control panel and any icon I click gives me that same error, I can only go to the Folder Options in the "Tools" menu.

I also tried START>RUN>REGEDIT and get the same message. I'm not sure how this happened. I have tried going into safe mode, and I was able to log in as the "Owner" but when I tried logging in as the Administrator, it seemed to never load up. Even in safe mode I have the same problem. I believe the computer is using Service Pack 3.

I thought maybe trying System Restore might solve the problem, but I Can't even access that, I get the same message. I can't even go into Add/Remove programs.

I'm out of ideas, any help is welcome please.

A:This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.

Limewire is my #1 source of income to do the repair needed to clean-up the malware that it brings in. I'd look for malware first.

If your system files are corrupted, damaged and/or infected by malware, System Restore will not help you, in fact even a Repair Install may be ineffective. Your inability to boot to Safe Mode indicates serious system file corruption.


First thing, boot using a Windows XP disk to Recovery Console and run:

1) fixboot
2) fixmbr
3) chkdsk /r

Then, boot to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key. If you can get to Safe Mode, use Start>Run>MSCONFIG and turn off everything except the microsoft services and reboot.

If you can get this far, get help on malware removal in the Securities Forum.

Hey, I recently had Vista Guardian on my computer and manually deleted the files for it in regedit.However, i think i might have deleted something else as well, because now i cant open any programs on my laptop. My computer says that this file needs an associated program for it to work. I've read a couple of threads stating to go into RUN then type Command.exe but it still wont let me do this. I then tried Command.com and it worked, but when i type regedit.exe regedit.cm it still comes up with that popup.

i think i know what to do because i read a guys post who was having simliar problems

If Registry Editor opened successfully, navigate to the following key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ exefile \ shell \ open \ command.
Double-click the (Default) value in the right hand pane and delete the current value data, and then type:
"%1" %* exactly as shown including the quotes and asterisk.
Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe
In the right-hand pane, set (default) to exefile

But i can't get into my regedit, any ideas?

Slowness issues aside, it is telling you that the file you are trying to play is not associated with a media player. In Windows Explorer, right click on the file, choose "Open With - Choose Program", and then select your media player or browse to the media player exe file.

You may also need to install video codecs to support that file type.

Hi there.

I've got a bit of a problem with my Medion Akoya laptop! It just started yesterday. Every time I try and double-click a folder or the C: drive, I get the following message -

"This file not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel."

I'm using Win 7. Other files and .exe files open no problem. I CAN get into a folder by typing the full address into the search bar - ie C:\program files\cubase\drivers etc. There was a Windows critical update early yesterday afternoon. Dunno if this was responsible but i tried deleting the update - made no difference. Tried to locate autorun.inf virus as advised by an earlier post but it doesn't seem to be there. Ran full virus check with Avast! and spyware check with spybot. Ran full chkdisk scan as well. Nothing has resolved the problem. Tried system restore a couple of times, but this never completes properly (thats another story!) Any help at all would be fantastic.

Hi all, I have a fairly specific question about file type associations in Windows 10. I would like for the default action when opening a certain file type to be to open the file location instead. Is this possible?

For example, say I have a file "C:\Note.txt" . When I open the file it opens in notepad currently. What I would like instead is: when I open the file, it takes me to the folder "C:\" . I don't actually intend to use this for .txt files, but I assume the technique will be pretty much the same for any file type.

Is there any simple way of accomplishing this? Thanks in advance.

I have encountered an annoying little bug that I cannot solve and it's been a while ago that it started. I have downloaded a few files (.mkv) and have gotten thumbnails working for the files. Anyway, after the file was downloaded, they were stuck open in windows explorer. I cannot tell you if this started before or after gaining MKV thumbnail support, but I can tell you that if I uninstall the DIVX Plus application splitter and codec, it still remains affected. I cannot move or rename the files as they are constantly open in Windows Explorer. I can copy the files to new locations but the copies are affected the same way. If I close explorer.exe in the task manager and use CMD to rename and move the files, it works fine but when explorer.exe is reactivated, it opens them once more. (I also have taken to moving the files in Linux to save the hassle of CMD typing.) After a restart the files are open by windows explorer. After renaming the files with Linux (or CMD) they are STILL open by windows explorer. The files play perfectly in both WMP and MPlayer. I don't know what is causing this. How can I close these files in Windows Explorer so I don't have to deal with it?

Do you think the files are corrupted in someway keeping them open? Could it be the thumbnails? I have already used disk clean up to delete the thumbnails and reapply them and that didn't work. Turning off the thumbnails in Folder Options doesn't fix it either. So I don't actually think... Read more

Hi everyone,

I'm having a weird problem when I try to open any of my file folders. Usually the first option at the top of the right-click menu is 'Open' but for some reason mine has 'cmd' at the top instead.
Whenever I try to open file folders with just a click, the error message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

I'll attempt to be as clear as possible when explaining my goal - a goal I was able to achieve with Windows XP, but have yet to learn the Windows 7 way.

I have a file named whatever.rar. If I double click on the file, WinRAR opens the file and shows me what it contains. This is not the action I want my computer to do when I double click.

What I WANT the double click action to do is to invoke WinRAR's "Extract Here" command - a command that I currently have to do by right clicking on the file and choosing from that menu.

As I said earlier, this change was a piece of cake in XP since the properties of the right click menu can be modified through the Control Panel (once you know where to look). All I had to do was deselect "Open" as the default action and specify "Extract Here" as the default action. Once this modification is made, the "Extract Here" option appears in bold when the file is right clicked, and "Open" is no longer bold.

This is what I want Windows 7 to do. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

A:Change double click ACTION - not merely the file association

Hello everyone!

I come here with a "bug" that is really really starting to cause problems.

Firstly, I would like to direct you to this thread.

I asked for help on another forum and well you can see what we went through, however they were not able to completely solve the problem.

I've done some quick tests, and it has basically ended up being that whenever an exe file is involved, Windows will go crazy with permissions or something.

The behaviour is pretty much that I try to delete a folder with exe files in it, and it will tell me that I do not have permission to do so. If I go inside the folder, I can delete the files no problem. Once they're gone, I can delete the folder.

But other instances are that when I try to delete some files, the file will remain, but it won't be there, my computer will say that I need to specify the correct path. Then after a few minutes, the file will actually disappear.

This has become quite a nuisance, because for example, I need to run Punkbuster so I can play some games. Punkbuster runs 2 services, PnkbstrA.exe and PnkbstrB.exe

PnkbstrB.exe is created by PnkbstrA.exe when a game is launched and it's updated on-the-fly. This is a problem, since my system will then deny access to PnkbstrB.exe, so A can't delete/update or do anything to the file for a few minutes, and I'll just end up being kicked in-game because I don't have B.

If I go into the Syswow64 folder, B is there, but you can'... Read more

I have posted this on Yahoo Answers as well and a gentleman suggested the following:

I bought another external hard drive to transfer my files onto and borrowed a brand new HP Laptop from a friend running Windows Vista.

What must i do to fix this!?!?

A:How can i revert a corrupted folder, that is now an unreadable file back to a folder?

Do the "corrupt" folders cause a problem? Does the system still boot and work as normal? If so then simply delete them - they won't copy to anything if they ARE corrupt.
