This Action Cannot Be Completed Because The Other Program Is Busy

From time to time when I click to perform an action I receive a notice in a window named "Server Busy". When I click on "Switch to" it goes to the start window, so I do not know which program to activate and correct the problem what ever it is. This is the message:This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose "switch to" to activate the busy program and correct the problem.There are 3 buttons "Switch To" "Retry" "Cancel"When I check the properties of the message it seems to be connected to IE. I am having a problem with IE9 that I have posted on this forum. The answers I continue to get from the forum are for problems listed in the forum at least 2 years ago.

"The Action Cannot Be Completed Because The Folder Or A File In It Is Open In Another Program"
I'm getting this message when I try to transfer folder to another location on my hard drive."The action cannot be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program."The problem is I don't know what program has the folder open. How do I find out which program it is so I can close it and move the folder to another location?

The Action Can't Be Completed Bec The Folder/file Is In Use By Another?
When I try to delete a few videos on my desktop it will not allow me by saying that they are use by another program. The other program has been uninstalled a little while back so I am not sure how to fix. I've checked several places and it's not on my computer any longer.

"The Action Could Not Be Completed. Try The Action Again"
I have a new machine running Win 7 Home Premium 64, which came preinstalled with Office 2010 Starter. I'm trying to uninstall all Office software, but Office Click-to-Run 2010 won't uninstall.When I try to uninstall it from the Programs and Features screen, I get an error message that reads, "The action could not be completed. Try the action again. If the action continues, contact Microsoft Product Support."I have tried the Microsoft Fix it for Me wizard (How do I uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if I cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?) to no avail, and I've tried Revo Uninstaller, which removes Office Click-to-Run from the Add or Remove Programs screen but does not uninstall it cleanly.There are two other Office 2010 entries in the Programs and Features list: Microsoft Office Starter 2010 - English and Microsoft Office 2010. These uninstall without any issue, but Office Click-to-Run 2010 won't budge.

"The Action Can't Be Completed Because The File Is Open In Windows Explorer. Close File And Try Again"
I'm on a network where I keep my files but I'm very aware of whether or not these might be open elsewhere. From time to time at any old time of the day (randomly it seems in other words) I'll go in and try to arrange, rename, or get rid of files and I'll get "The action can't be completed because the file is open in Windows Explorer. Close file and try again". Except that the file ISN'T open anywhere.

Mouse Cursor Flashing Busy
System is Windows 7 home 64 bit with amd athlon II 255 Processor 3.10 GHz and 4gb of ram. Avast anti-virus. I have windows firewall on, but haven't really made any other changes.My cursor flashes the busy symbol about once every 4-5 seconds, and it does so whenever the mouse is on the desktop or anywhere it shows the regular icon. When inside this text window it changes to the text cursor and ceases to flash, however. I changed the icon only to have the new one act the same.

Cursor Busy Circle Constantly On?
I just purchased a new HP computer with Windows 7 and I'm using IE9. The cursor busy circle is constantly running and nothing I do makes it go away. There are no programs trying to open and nothing being downloaded , it happens just by moving the mouse. I already ran a full scan and there are no viruses. I went to the Microsoft website forum but they don't really seem to know what is causing this problem. I read that it might be Constant Guard which is offered by Comcast with Norton so I uninstalled it but that didn't help , I also read it might be the printer software but I haven't tried that yet

Why Windows 7 Always Seems Busy (Hard Drive Spinning)
I've been using Windows 7 for just over a week. The hard disk often spinning like doing something even though I wasn't touch the laptop. Before I install Windows 7 (fresh install), my old XP seems to be much more "quiet".

Busy Cursor Rapid Oscillation While Web Browsing
I have noticed lately that, occasionally, while I am reading an article on any number of various websites, my cursor will begin to rapidly oscillate between the typical arrow and the blue ring busy cursor for maybe a second at most in duration. I haven't noticed the webpages hanging in any way or refreshing; that is to say there are none of the blue rotating circles in any of the open webpage process tabs that would indicate any new webpage activity specific to that webpage loading into the page's process. I tend to notice this happening when I am reading a page with no additional interaction--I am typically not even touching the mouse when I see it occur.Basically, I am wondering what different things might be causing the momentary activity. I am using Google Chrome for my browser and have nineteen extensions installed, so, I was thinking possibly I am seeing an extension occasionally updating or possibly checking for updates. That is just an uneducated speculation out of the blue. It also may be that this has always happened since loading Chrome, that for some arbitrary reason I just began to focus on it, and, having now fixated upon it, it stands out.

Backup Can't Be Completed Issue
I recently setup a Home Server to have Windows 7 automatically backup. The home server has a 1TB HD and I've set full permissions for everyone in my network but the problem is Windows 7 will go so far with backup and then all of a sudden it will stop and say it can't be completed.

Then if I click Details it just comes up and says Access denied. Whats up?

X-64 Install Via USB -- 15 Mins Completed
On a Laptop with 4G RAM and Dual T7250 CPU install time for Clean install of Rc x-64 build 7100 took just over 15 Mins when booted up from a USB stick .

OK I have to install applications and find one or two drivers etc (you always have to do that anyway) but the "Base" install really didn't take long at all.

Maybe a USB should be an "Optional" install medium.

Was a great trick to run the "BOOTSECT" command from the "Install" DVD to get the bootsector on to the USB disk.

Now I've got a nice fast portable method of installing from a USB stick.

Now to see if it works on a Netbook with no internal DVD drive.

-- It does -- but beware there's no Prompt on the boot so if you re-boot during the setup it will start again from scartch so remove the USB stick after the first boot and insert it again quickly before the setup continues. I.E insert the USB stick again at the boot splash screen.

Busy Circle In An Endless Loop On Many Websites Or Pages
The issue might be on the server end. I don't know. The situation is this I have internet access and many web sites are consistently difficult to access. A good example would be and their pages as well as the links to their site that I click in the email they send me. The blue busy circle stay in an endless loop. I can access there site sometimes if I persistently tap F5 (refresh). While this issue is a problem with many web sites that I try to access some pull up instantly. Is there something I can do to fix this or could it be the ISP or a server issue.

Regular BSOD During Busy Tasks And Constant WoW Crashes Since Windows 7
I built my own computer last January and installed Windows Vista first and everything worked fine but then I upgraded to Windows 7.In the beginning it worked great, I did get the common problem of every kind of browser crashed every couple of hours and sometimes refused to load up again but i persist and put up with it.Then over the past 3-4 months, I have been getting regular BSOD - They used to be very similar screens and i am not fast enough to jott down the error codes sadly.I maybe receive 2-3 BSoD everyday and the most common issue i am experiencing is when i play World of Warcraft - since these BSoD began, this has been crashing a hell of a lot as well. I cant get an hours play on it without it crashing with the same issue.I put it to the forums with this error log Wow Crash 2/1/13 - and was told to carry out some actions to see if this could resolve the matter which it did for a very short period of time (ie a day) and then came back with its constant WoWcrashes and BSoD

The BSoD happen when im on and off the game - a lot of the time its when a lot of processes are running, ie several tabs open in my browsers, spotify playing and maybe a couple of folders open - its as if it cant handle it running.I have tried to search for my dumplogs, i was told it was in %systemroot%minidump but its empty and there are no .dmp files on my computer except warcraft ones.

Blank Screen: Has Not Completed Installation Yet
I have a problem with a new install of windows 7.

I bought a version of W7 Home Premium. I was running XP before, put in windows 7, backed up my files on external USB, formatted my drive and proceeded with a fresh install. After installation and first startup, I see the windows 7 load screen, then all I see is a blank screen.

I've tried to run a repair but it can't fix it. I've tried running in Safe Mode but it won't because it says it hasn't completed installation yet. I've unplugged all USB devices except for my KB and mouse. Still just a blank screen. Can anyone help?

Windows 7 X64 Laptop Randomly Stops Responding With Busy Cursor Shown
The computer will stop responding, the cursor shows the busy blue ring (spinning, not frozen), and I can still move the blue ring around, but unable to click on anything. CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't work, nothing works. Tried leaving it overnight but it didn't solve the problem. I had to force shut down by holding the Power button.This problem happens at random times, while using random applications, online or not, sometimes within a few minutes after turning on the computer, sometimes hours, but it happens almost every time. I have also tried turning on the computer and left it without using anything, and the same problem will happen.

How To Transfer Scanned Forms To Be Completed And Printed
I have a number of pre-printed forms with many blank spaces to be filled in. Rather than completing them all by hand, I would like to scan them into some software, like MS Word, then fill them in on the computer and then print them. I have Windows 7 Ultimate and an Epson Photo R200 printer.

Windows 7 Backup Completed But Some Files Were Skipped
I have Win 7 Home Premium SP1. For the past year and a half, I've been using the Win 7 backup about once a month without any problems. My hard drive is partitioned into drives C and D, and I back up onto an external hard disk, which appears as Drive I when connected. (The external hard disk is partitioned into drives G, H, I, but there is plenty of space on drive I).

In addition, more often, I back up my important data folders (using MS Synctoy) on a USB flash memory which appears as Drive F. Yesterday, I backed up to the flash memory. Then I did the Win 7 backup to my external hard disc, but I forgot to remove the flash memory from the USB port, which I always do. When the Win 7 backup finished, I got an error message from Windows Backup: "Windows Backup did not complete successfully. The backup completed but some files were skipped."

When I looked at "View Skipped Files", it said "Windows Backup skipped F:Music because it cannot be found on drive F:." (There is no "Music folder on drive F). So I took out the USB flash memory and tried Win 7 Backup again (twice). Same result. Then I shut down the PC for the night. This morning I turned it on again. Everything else seemed to be working. So I did Win 7 Backup with the same result.

I looked at "Restore all users' files" in the Backup Window, and there I see that I have only a folder called "Users" backed up from the C Drive, and only a folder called "Music" backed up from the D Drive. I have many other folders in these drives, and even these folders only show a small portion of the files in those folders on my PC. It also shows that there is an empty F:Music folder backed up. Just to remind you - there is no F Drive once I remove my USB flash memory.

Looking at "Manage Windows Backup Space" I see that on Drive I (the backup drive) I use 26.6 GB for Data File Backup, 95 GB for System Image, with 64 GB of free space on the drive. Since my C and D drives have a total of 74 GB used space, and I assume Win 7 Backup compresses files, these numbers look reasonable to me. Are my files backed up or not? Why the silly error message? My external hard disk seems fine, as best as I can tell.
