Release files for easy deletion

Have you ever found it hard to delete files or exit processes because Windows claims the file is in use? It can be a real pain, and these messages are doubly annoying as they don't tell you what to do.

File & Folder Unlocker is a small application that does give you this info, and also gives you the power to stop files or processes. There's a search bar so you can quickly find the filename you want. Double clicking on the result will allow you to kill or unlock the file, and you can view the process path if you wish.

The nice thing about File & Folder Unlocker is as it's an executable file, there's no installation, and you can run it from your portable USB drive. The interface is practical, though if you don't understand the inner workings of Windows (and let's face it, most people don't need to) bear in mind you shouldn't go around killing processes at random! File & Folder Unlocker should be used to stop the specific things you have problems with.

File & Folder Unlocker is a useful tool to have in your arsenal when Windows is stopping you from deleting thing you want!
