    After trying everything you all have suggested with no avail I tried something Suzanne tried but didn't work for her - Clean Disk.
    Wadda ya know it worked. I'd sure like for this not to happen again. Any idea what caused it?

    I ran the clean disk. My recycle bin was fairly full. I had several large illustrator files there. Do you think that could have been the problem? Someone suggested to use SHIFT DELETE from illustrator to keep these files from going to the bin. Do you agree?

    Marty:

    I don't know. The problem is very similar to one that won't let you save to an existing file, change its name, or delete it. This problem is due to a persistent "handle" between Windows Explorer and .ai files via aiicon.dll. This is probably a Windows problem. In your other post I gave a simpler solution, but doing Shift + Delete should bypass the problem altogether. steve
