I am trying to edit html files on a Network but when I go to save them I am getting an error message sayIng:

Encountered a sharing violation while accessing Filepath\MFC64BD.tmp

Since I cannot save the file I close it and then it is deleted permantly off the server location and cannot be restored.

I have checked the file permissions, changed permissions, changed network locations and still the same thing happens - others users can access, change and save the HTML file so it appears to be a Profile / Windows 7 issue?

Are there any other error messages? What does it say in the event log?
.tmp is a temporary file, what editor are you using to edit the html files?

>Since I cannot save the file I close it and then it is deleted permantly off the server location and cannot be restored.

You mean the file you tried to edit is deleted from the server?

Have you tried stopping the IISAdmin service before trying to save the file?
