when windows says 'some other process is using the file', what tool can we use to find out what process is keeping a hold on the file?

Handle.exe from sysinternal suite will definitely help but if that file is locked by system process, reboot is the last option you have.

You can use LockHunter tool, it is free.

Handle is a good tool for doing exactly that.
