When I open any excel file with Excel 2010 which were saved in Excel 2003/2007, It creates some temporary file of same size in the same folder and I get following error message;

"When saving a file, a sharing violation can be caused by the way an antivirus application interacts with Microsoft Office.

Check with your antivirus provider to make sure that the current version of the application, including updates, is installed. The antivirus provider might also have information or solutions for sharing violation issues."

If I delete the temporary file then sometimes it lets me save the excel.

If I create new file in Excel 2010, I don't face such error.

What should I do?

Please edit you questions and add details to the following; Did you check with your antivirus provider? Which one are you using? Are these files you created? Are they saved locally in a trusted location? – CharlieRB Jan 15 '13 at 16:42
I am using bitdefender. I have tried after disabling antivirus and firewall. I was not facing any such problem with office 2007 or 2003 but with 2010. I have files locally on another drive. I have 2 OS installed. Yes, I am accessing files created by myself – Amit Gupta Jan 20 '13 at 6:19
