Exporting Acrobat to other formats, including Word

I am trying to export a pdf to a Word doc, and have done that without trouble in the past. Now when I try I get an error message saying:

"The specified file could not be written to. It may be in use."


I have tried restarting my computer, closing all word documents, changing the name of the file and then exporting, changing the name of the file when asked by the export pop up window, and always get the same result. I also tried exporting as a text and rtf and, again, get the same error. 


Could anyone help? I've tried to find a solution in previous posts but the suggestions there (rename) don't seem to work for me. 


Thanks in advance,
