    Microsoft Windows Search Protocol Host - McAfee Warning

    Why does Microsoft Windows Search Protocol Host need to access the internet? McAfee is giving me a warning. Do I block or allow this program?

    MIcrosoft Windows Search Protocol Host

    I am trying to delete a file, but keep getting this dialogue box:

    This action can't be completed because the file is open in Microsoft Windows Search Protocol Host.

    Close the file and try again.

    So where (or more specifically how) do I close the file?
