    Getting 'sharing violation' errors when saving Excel files

      I've done several searches on this discussion board and haven't seend anything on this, which is suprising, since I've seen it come up in Google searches.  Anyway, the problem is that sometimes when I'm saving and Excel file, I get an error saying something like, 'cannot save to this file due to a sharing violation.' When I click on More Info, it says it's probably a conflict with my security software.  Then it saves the file with some funky, 8-character, alpha-numeric name and I have to do a Save As to get back to the correct file name.


      I thought I had it figured out that it would only happen when Outlook was sending/receiving emails, so I got into the habit of hitting send/receive, then saving the files.  The problem went away for a while, but now it's back and it's driving me INSANE!!  Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this???


      FYI, I have a Dell XPS, bought a year ago, running Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, Office 2010, and McAfee Security Center.
