Error with pip install

I am trying to pip install pyperclip. When I run this in the command prompt I am getting a permission error -

PermissionError: [WinError 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: ‘C:\Users\my_user\AppData\Local\Temp\tmpybqp3z0q’

I can go into the folder Temp and delete tmpybqp3z0q, but when I run the command prompt again it will create a new file in this folder and give me the same error, now referencing the newly created file.

Looks like others have run into this online as well.

There is one proposed solution suggests removing python-certifi-win32 if you have it. Was this something you installed recently?
