delete files locked by other processes LockHunter enables to unlock files that are locked (in use) by other processes. Simply select the file in question and the program will show you which processes are locking it and offer you options to unlock, delete, rename or copy the file. You can also choose to close, and optionally delete, the locking process. LockHunter also integrates with the Windows Explorer context menu and adds a convenient "What's locking this file?" option to the right-click menu. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Better than unlocker 5 stars by kreezxil397 Jan 22, 2020
I used to use unlocker but stopped using it when it stopped working on Windows 10. But I ran into a jam again where I needed to delete something that wouldn't delete. Lock Hunter to the rescue and I like that it shows what was actually lacking the file or folder. In my case it was Disk Speedup by GlarySoft. Apparently it failed to release a file, or was actively defragging a file in that folder. Unlocker would've have never given me that information. I recommend donating to this project too. I am. Don't be shy we all spend more on junk at the corner store or fast food restaurants than what the authors are asking for. show Review details
Stubborn files - unlocked!! 5 stars by busybusy Dec 18, 2019 (Read all my 261 reviews)
Wow, can't believe I just not have seen this program. I run into this a lot with applications that fail to release all the files it uses. This program now has taken care of that issue. Not it is just a Right-Click away to solving your locked file issue. This makes it so easy to use. Thanks for Crystal Rick for making such a needed program!! show Review details
Great stuff 5 stars by Gunner88 Jun 05, 2015 (Read all my 6 reviews)
After a couple of frustrating hours trying to remove stubborn DLL's unwittingly installed in third party software, this little beauty did the job in two minutes flat. Simple & easy to use via context menu - and an excellent price! show Review details
