As an experienced (imho) windows user I strongly disagree with the above statement, even Windows itself won't usually tell which process is preventing delete/move/overwrit-ing a file. (It'd really be great when trying to unmount an USB device.) [Yes, the sysinternals tools do, but thats irrelevant here.]
