Lock Hunter Features
Deleting files at next operating system restart
This software does it best to forcibly delete a file or a folder. But in some cases, Windows doesn’t allow you to delete it even if all connections to the file are closed. In this case, this software offers you to delete the file at the next restart of the operating system. Just choose Other -> Delete At Next Restart menu item.
When you check the “More details” option you can see many hidden details of the process: process ID, service name (in case if it’s a Windows service) and a process command line.
The program now automatically checks for upgrades once in 5 days. Besides you can check for upgrades manually via “Menu -> Check for updates” menu item.
This software now behaves correctly on a multi-monitor system, furthermore, the program presets its coordinates between restarts.
Just press “Ctrl+C” at a process or a file or right-click and choose “Copy to clipboard” in order to put all information about the process to the clipboard.
Now you don’t need to decide which operating system kind you have. Just download the only installer and use it on any Windows starting from XP.
