Format HDD

Good afternoon,
I am trying to format my old computer hard drive, but when i try to do it, this message pops up, informing me to quit any disk utilities or other programs using the drive. i have no other windows open when i try this, and i don't know what other "utility" programs are running in the background.
thanks in advance for any assistance.

(And here i thought this would be simple )
