If you have been using Windows long enough you would have noticed that there are times when you cannot delete, move or rename a file or folder and it’s telling you access denied error together with it is being used by another person or program. You closed everything but still unable to modify the file. One thing you didn’t know is Windows sometimes secretly attaches some of the core process such as explorer.exe to the file and it is not being released on time or probably not at all until you reboot the computer.

Unlocker is the most famous program in its type to find out what is causing the file cannot be modified and also the ability to “unlock” it so you can do whatever you want to the file. It can be even be used to solve the problem of unable to safely remove hardware or eject media on your USB flash drive.

To use Unlocker after installation, simply right click on any file, folder or even the whole drive and select Unlocker from the right click context menu.

    I love Unlocker so naturally it was one of the first things I downloaded and installed on my new Windows 7 machine. However, once installed I don’t see “Unlock” in the flyout menus anywhere.

    Maybe I got the 32-bit version. Do you know when the 64-bit version will be available?
