Google that Error?  "Prerequisite check "CheckActiveFilesAndExecutables" failed"

Some process has a file lock on some files that need replacing.  Are all Oracle processes stopped?

As the message "Following executables are active :
is clearly saying that the oracle is up, couple of questions in the direction to help you.

1. Were oracle instance(pmon/smon etc.), listener and all other Oracle related processes down on this box?
2. What is the output of the command "ipcs"?
