We have files sitting in shared folders on a Windows Server 2003 SR2 machine.
We are running vista on our PCs. When opening up certain Excel files from the PCs and try to save we get a sharing violation message. No one else has the file open and if I check open files on the server it does not show the files in question after we close it on the users PC. Yet as soon as you open it and try save we get the same sharing violation.

What is causing this?
What can I do to stop this?
