Yet Another Problem!!

I haven't had time to browse all of the previous if this is an old subject please excuse. Anyway... I just built an assembly (about 50 parts) and when I executed my last save on the last version of this assembly I got a message asking if I wanted to save the changes to the assembly and all of its depenants. I clicked yes. Now I'm unable to modify anything in the assembly, sub assemblies, or individual parts in their respective folders. What gives??? What locked these files so I can't edit them? Can anyone bail me out of this one??

Are any of your parts and subs in "library" search paths? Is
there an instance of inventor hidden in Task manager? Are
there any lockfile*.lck files in your project directorues
after inventor is closed?

Thanks for pointing me that direction!! Somehow... the entire folder "my documents" got incorporated into my library search path (all of the other search paths became highlighted in red). As soon as I deleted that from the search path the problem was resolved! Thanks!!
