How to Delete “Locked” Files Using “Unlocker” Software

Have you experienced or have been experiencing from time to time files that can not be deleted because Windows system is locking it? (see top image). I’ve been using the UNLOCKER software for years now and it’s been very effective in releasing locked files or delete some files that can’t be erased by usual means. Check THE BOX@ the sidebar of this tech-blog for the Unlocker software and download it for installation on your PC. It’s safe and effective.

It’s no hassle. You just have to install the software and be sure it’s part of the start-up programs. You can verify if Unlocker has been started when you boot your PC by checking the Unlocker Assistant in the System Tray. When you delete a locked file, you’ll receive a message like the first image above and when you closed the message dialog, the Unlocker dialog will open.

You will be given the option to unlock, rename or delete the file. Done!


The Unlocker software works with Windows 7. I’ve just tried it. Disregard my comment below about Windows 7. Thanks–juntar
