If you have ever had a program on your PC that you couldn't remove, Unlocker can help. Whether it was an accidentally downloaded program, spyware or a rogue search program, there are times when you want to remove a file. Sometimes, files cannot be removed by going to the control panel and deleting or uninstalling. An error message will say the user needs permissions, the file is in use or the action can only be done by a system administrator.

Small File Size

It does not matter what message is displayed, Unlocker can remove the files easily. The Unlocker software program is small, so it will not take up a lot of disk space. Many times, the reason you might want to clean out your programs is that you need the extra space. A small addition that assists in cleaning up your hard drive's disk space is a smart idea.

Easy Configuration

In fact, configuration is unnecessary. The Unlocker only has one job on your PC. It has to remove files. There are no options to choose when downloading Unlocker. It downloads quickly and easily so you can use the software immediately.

Choose Unlocker

After downloading the Unlocker program, open up your control panel and find the file you want to delete. Simply right click on the file and choose the option for removal by Unlocker. You could bypass the standard uninstall option if you wanted and always choose to delete using Unlocker.

Delete or Move

When you choose the Unlocker option, the software will give you a few choices. You can delete the file completely, which removes it from your PC. You could choose to rename the file, or you could move it to another place on your PC, like the recycle bin.

If you can complete the removal, Unlocker will run the next time your computer is turned on or restarted. Computers can often freeze when performing tasks for no reason. Unlocker will pick up where you left off in the process.
