    Photoshop CS4 "Could not save as...because file is already in use or was left open"

    chillycub

      I have been using Photoshop for years, and CS4 for about a year now.  I have never had this error message pop up until this week.  It started happening right after I did the Adobe update to 11.0.2.  Everytime I try to save a PSD or JPG file now (which are the only two types of files I work with), I get this message preventing me from being able to save;

       

      "Could not save as... because file is already in use or was left open."

       

      I have to attempt to Save as about a dozen times before it will finally save the file.  Any suggestions on what could be wrong and how to remedy it?  Is it the update that caused this problem?
