    Unlocker - website

    This is a very useful program for when we received annoying dialogs that some file or folder are locked or in used...

    Try it... ;)

    Very good programme which has helped me out a few times. From the Readme text which comes with it : "It is recommended to Unlock wisely and to close open processes locking files or folder if any, but if only Explorer.exe is the culprit, do not
    hesitate!"

    Hello,

    I am the author of Unlocker.

    Yes it is possible since version 1.5.2

    Could you contact me on ccollomb @ yahoo . com so that I try to find the bug you seem to be experiencing?

    You should have the screenshot you posted in your second post if you try to unlock a temporary file. Unless the temporary file is not used anymore and thus has no handles attached to it.

    What I recommend is to try to find the handle with process explorer. http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.html

    If process explorer finds the handle and Unlocker do not then it means I have a bug in Unlocker.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Cedrick

    Unlocker 1.7.0 - 08/08/2005

    - New functionality: help deleting, renaming and moving objects even if no handle exist. If previous versions of Unlocker only told you "No locking handle found", this new version should help you solve your problems
    - New functionality: Short/Long/UNC name file deleting, renaming and moving operations to delete badly named objects. If you do not know what I am talking about, run this batch file and try to delete the folders created at the root of the C: drive without Unlocker and you will understand :D
    - New functionality: delete, rename, move on next boot
    - New functionality: improved delete. Now C:\Documents and Settings\username\Cookies\index.dat can be deleted without killing processes
    - Improved UI: the webpage link of the update alert is clickable now
    - Improved UI: items can be sorted when clicking the listview columns titles
    - New Language: Estonian thanks to Mihkel Tonnov for the translation
    - New Language: Spanish thanks to Javier L. for the translation
    - Fixed bug: the explorer extension does not use msvcrt71.dll anymore since it is not installed by default
    - Fixed bug: multiple selection delete and move should work now
