Windows 10 system.

Every time i open Bitcoin Core version 0.15.1 I get this message.

Cannot obtain a lock on data directory C:. Bitcoin Core is probably already running. The system cannot find the file specified..

I have checked Task manager and nothing is running, I have even deleted the lock file as someone else previously mentioned else where, I have turned computer off and on still no different.
