Default 'File already in use' problem

I am using a system DSN to connect to an Access database on win2k sp3 and i keep on getting this error.

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Could not use '(unknown)'; file already in use.
/courses/TMP2zkybrhh52.asp, line 15

I thought it was because i had the database open however after restarting my machine, the page worked then when I tried it again 10 mins later i got this error again and i had not started access or opened the database.

Any body have any ideas?

In your code, did you close the connection to the database?
