    Default Illustrator and Locked Up Files

    I have a continuing problem with Illustrator that works the same across different platforms and different machines. Illustrator keeps locking up files so that I can't move them around to different storage and client directories and later delete them from the original file location. I worked on a file yesterday, and finished the design, but today I can't open the file and save any changes to it or delete it from my working space. Does anyone else have this problem or can tell me what's going on and how to fix this problem???!!!

    Have you regularly performed system clean? Especially for this, you want to be sure to remove all .TMP files from your system and particularly those in your Doent and Settings\yourusername\local settings\temp folder.

    There are lots of threads about this. Try searching for aiicon.dll nad you'll hit a few of them.

    I do regular system cleans, and I just cleared out all .TMP files from my system at your suggestion, but I still can't delete the file from it's original location. Any other ideas???

    I will search the threads for "aiicon.dll" and see if anything helps. Thanks.

    Removing the aiicon.dll file seemed to clear up the problem. I can live without the iconized previews. Thanks for all the help!
