Unlocker will allow you to delete files or folders that windows says are being used.
Recently i was trying to delete a folder in Windows XP but Windows kept saying that it was being used by a program so i couldn't delete it. i am sure most of you encountered that problem at least once and wished there was a better way than rebooting the PC in order to delete a single file or folder. With Unlocker you can forget about that since it's the perfect solution for the case i mentioned before. After installation all you need to do is to right click on a file or folder and select the unlocker option, with the small menu that appears you can unlock or kill the processes that keep the file or folder from being deleted. you just need to be careful to only unlock or kill the processes that keep a file locked, usually this is caused by the explorer.exe process.
Unlocker only uses between 300 to 500KB of memory when running so don`t worry about hoging many system resources.
In conclusion this a great little program that fixes an annoying windows bug. Available for Windows XP/2000/2003/XP/Vista.
