LockHunter

LockHunter is a free tool to delete files blocked by something you do not know. LockHunter is useful for fighting against malware, and other programs that are blocking files without a reason. Unlike other similar tools it deletes files into the recycle bin so you may restore them if deleted by mistake.

  • Improved performance of locking process scan
  • GDI objects count grows with each UI refresh
  • The icon in the Explorer context menu had white background, now it’s transparent
  • If asked to delete directories on OS restart it falsely reported they were deleted, while actually it didn’t that
  • The process list didn’t always scroll with mouse wheel
  • “Delete selected processes from disk” function always displayed false result even if file was deleted
  • In WinXP in some cases “Cannot open service control manager” was displayed
