Audacity is already running BUG

Hello, I recently updated to the newest version of Audacity and now cannot access the program. Anytime I try to open it (Windows OS) I get a notifcation saying the program is already in use. There are no other programs running or instances of Audacity running in my task manager. ADDITIONALLY I cannot delete the original Audacity program file because “the file is already in use”. Please help me so I can use Audacity again.

Rebooting your computer should change this situation.

I was having the same problem, I restarted my computer and that fixed it.
