How to know which application is locked a file from deleting and how to solve such issues?

Most of you might have such situations that when you trying to change, move or delete a file/folder Windows denied it , and says it is used by another application.
Windows only suggests closing all applications that may be using the file, but it's not clear what specific applications are meant. Though, often it can be solved by a rebooting, but not always. Is there any effective method of handling locked files and folders without a reboot?

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required.
