I have a windows 2003 server dedicated as a file server.
When a file is open by a user (no mather whitch user), and an other user is trying to open the file, they get an error: this file is already opend by user X.
What is a good thing cause only one user can open a file at a time. However...... the name of user X is always the same!!! (one of my collegue, that isn't even working or loged in at this time!!)

Does any of you're guys have any idear how to fix this????
