What's the context of the message Dave and what type of prgram is it?

Generally a sharing violation comes from two programs trying share the same file or set of files.

Hmmm, okay we now have a problem. This site doesn't support cracking or hacking, however a small bit of advice might help you. You can open an active file in dos. eg: ICQ is active when you boot your system into the Windows interface, but it is not active if you were to boot to an MSDOS prompt. Get my drift?
