Unlocker 1.9.2

Have you ever tried to move or delete a file, only to have Windows tell you that it's currently in use? It's becoming increasingly frequent as codecs, DLLs and certain applications don't properly unlock the file when they are finished using them. Usually this would cause you to restart the explorer.exe process or even your computer. But with the Explorer extension called Unlocker you can, as the name suggests, unlock the file for moving or deleting.

Unlocker will provide a solution for the following error messages:

  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
  • There has been a sharing violation.
  • The source or destination file may be in use.
  • The file is in use by another program or user.
  • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

What's new in this version:

  • Improved Installer: Universal installer for both 32 and 64 bit machines
  • Fixed Bug: Fixed small memory and behavior bugs

The installer is bundled with foistware (toolbars, etc) take note while installing!

This thing hasn't been updated it years. After XP, this tool imo became antiquated as the context menu items never showed up.

I'm guessing you're just not too good at keeping up to date with new releases then, because it was actually last updated at the end of 2011 (version 1.9.1, not even 2 years ago) and works on Vista and 7 perfectly fine and has done for many years.

Seems like it, If he's never heard of it then he must still be in the dark ages. If he finds things that others consider " Essential" then he needs to test/check them out too see if they truly are " Essential" for him.

Can't be to "essential" as I've never heard of it and never had a need for something like this!

Derp. Then clearly you're not "more-than-a-user" are you? lol
