Windows Help & Advice - - DISCOVER -

Have you ever tried to delete a file only to be pre­sented with a cryptic mes­sage about the file be­ing locked? Ever seen a mys­te­ri­ous ‘ac­cess de­nied’ prompt that re­ally shouldn’t be there? In­stall Un­locker, and you’ll be able to take con­trol. It adds a new op­tion when you right-click a file; se­lect Un­locker and you’ll be given the op­tion to re­move those locks and delete, re­name, or other­wise al­ter those files with­out hav­ing to track down the pro­gram that has its hooks into them.

Note: Be care­ful with the in­staller for Un­locker, since it will (by de­fault) in­stall some ran­dom soft­ware that you nei­ther need or want on your PC. Make sure you uncheck the ap­pro­pri­ate boxes. Sec­ondly, be care­ful how you use it. Delet­ing ran­dom sys­tem files is a par­tic­u­larly bad idea, so re­serve your use of Un­locker for those doc­u­ments you can stand to lose.

take con­trol Un­locker is a free app that en­ables you to eas­ily open locked files.
