What OS version are you using?

Photoshop gets that error from the OS and passes it along to you - so somewhere you do have another program using the file while Photoshop tries to save. That could be the Finder/Explorer in some cases, or a thumbnail utility, a bad antivirus program, etc.

Windows 7 x64. probably explorer, in most cases this blocks files...

Explorer can do that if you have an Explorer window open on the directory while saving (not as often), or have the file selected and showing a preview (this happens more often). But the majority of errors we've seen have been caused by thumbnailing utilities that hold the file open while they try to read it and create a thumbnail.
