I'm afraid there is no cure, except for disabling the "open for writing" option.
For some reason, Windows open the file both for reading and writing, when you select the "Properties" of a file. In my opinion, there is no need to do it (opening the file just for reading should be far enough to display its properties, shouldn't it?), but that's the way Microsoft has done it  >:(
