Read Only Error

I keep getting an error message when I attempt to open Word documents.  It says the document is “locked for editing by another user.  Do you want to open a read-open copy?”

I get this same error message when attempting to open Word docs on my computer and other computers in the network.  While I’m able to do a “save as” and create a new copy, it’s getting annoying b/c I know for a fact that no one else has my document open.

How do I fix this?

Windows Vista Enterprise SP2  32 bit
Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 sp2
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 3.0 GHz
2 GB Ram

It sounds as though the owner file did not delete properly when Word was closed.  The below MS support article describes how to delete the owner file:
