LockHunter Review

Tina de Pierre
Allows you to delete files which are currently in use
A review of LockHunter by Tina de Pierre

LockHunter is a small utility which lets you delete files which are currently in use by your operating system.

From the main interface of LockHunter, select the file which you would like to delete and click either "Delete It!" or "Unlock It!", the latter if you'd like to do something else with the file.

The program is a pretty simple concept, but can certainly lessen the headaches of virus hunting or simply when you want to remove a stubborn file from your hard drive.

LockHunter features and highlights:
  • Shows processes locking a file or folder
  • Gives you detailed information on the process
  • Allows to unlock, delete, copy or rename a locked file
  • Can delete a file at next OS restart
  • Allows to kill locking process
  • Allows to remove locking processes from hard drive
  • Can unload DLLs from processes
  • Integrates in to Explorer menu
  • It deletes files into the recycle bin, so you may restore them if deleted by mistake
