“Ioexception was unhandled” that error keeps appearing, how do I get rid of this error

Ervin Matlapeng asked:

Open original thread
I busy trying file Streaming but i keep on getting the above mentioned error more especially accompanied by:

"The process cannot access the file 'C:\Users\Lenovo\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\File streaming\File Streaming\bin\Debug\banking.xls' because it is being used by another process."

but the file is not opened or used by any other program

What I have tried:

Imports System.IO

Imports System.Windows.Forms.Form
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnDisplay_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDisplay.Click

        Dim FileStr As New FileStream("banking.xls", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write)

        Dim a As New StreamWriter(FileStr)

        'a.WriteLine("File should be displayed in the RTB............")

        FileStr = New FileStream("banking.xls", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)

        Dim i As New StreamReader(FileStr)

        i.BaseStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)

        If i.Peek() > -1 Then

            rtbDisplay.Text &= i.ReadLine()

        End If

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnClear_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnClear.Click

        rtbDisplay.Text = ""

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnExit_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnExit.Click


    End Sub

    Private Function FileStream() As Object
        Throw New NotImplementedException
    End Function

End Class
