Cheers id already looked at all that,i restarted the pc and its let me rename the file now.

A vista glitch maybe?

It may be that some other program that was using the file in question has not shut down correctly and in effect is still using it as i have just had the same problem tonight with windows media player not shutting down correctly and therefore not allowing me to rename a music file.
