First of all let me tell you that this is a pretty old application (released mid 2008). Most of you probably already know about Unlocker but I’m posting it here since it’s a must have utility for every Windows user. How many times have you come across one of those annoying error messages such as ‘file cannot be deleted since it’s still in use by an application’ or ‘cannot delete folder : it’s being used by another person or program’, when trying to remove an unwanted file or a folder from your system. With Unlocker, you no longer have to cope with such errors. Unlocker is a small software capable of identifying and terminating processes that have locks on files.
