<My problem is, when I save a Rich Text Format file from a clipboard I cannot open that file or any other rtf file using microsft word until the computer is completely turned off and restarted.

Here is the basic code:
Dim d As DataObject = My.Computer.Clipboard.GetDataObject
Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
Filename = StrConv(Trim(Message.txtMessage.Text), VbStrConv.ProperCase)
If d.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.Rtf) Then
    Using outfile As New StreamWriter(AppDataPath & "\Topics\" & Filename & ".rtf")
               End Using

Note: the file saves ok, but can't open until computer is turn off and back on again, even though the streamwriter object is closed.

Many thanks in advance
