Hi and welcome, leckworth :)


Please read the guidance first then download :)


Download Unlocker 1.9.2 - 32 and 64 bit version (With Installer)


Download Unlocker 1.9.0 Portable - 32 and 64 bit


Do you hate getting such an annoying message given by Windows?



It has many other flavors:

Cannot delete file: Access is denied
There has been a sharing violation.
The source or destination file may be in use.
The file is in use by another program or user.
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.


1. Simply right click the folder or file and select Unlocker


2. If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will appear


3. Simply choose what to do, then click Unlock All and you are done!
