Delete Used, Locked, Undeletable, Busy Files.

Free File Unlocker is an essential free utility to delete currently used, locked, undeletable, busy files. Works with all 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows and Windows Sertver. It unlocks files or folders and stops error messages from appearing when trying to delete, move and rename them. It can also be used to terminate malware that is difficult to be removed and kill viruses and trojans. It is fully integrated with Windows Explorer.

In case the locked file is a process module (dll etc.) it does unload it and unlocks the file.

In case a delete, rename or move action does not succeed it is scheduled for the next Windows Reboot.

Free File Unlocker can also be executed from the command line and has the ability to provide locked file input lists, copy destination lists, move destination lists and rename lists.

A portable version is also available.

It is suitable for all users that want to delete undeletable files, for system administrators, for developers and all windows power users.

    Says undeletable file doesn't exist. Claims it will delete on reboot. Virus is STILL there after reboot. Another program that doesn't do what it claims it can do. Very disappointed.
