About IObit Unlocker

Unlocker is one of the most complex unlocking utilities. It can close handles and kill processes without rebooting, deleting, renaming or moving the locked files. It also has a few other tricks that other similar programs lack.

A common Windows error is “Cannot delete file: It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again”. This dialog box can be very irritating since you know you are not doing anything wrong. The error appears because that file is currently “locked”, meaning a program/process is using the file.

Many programs will help you with this problem, but the best in my opinion is the IObit Unlocker for Windows.

  1. First, be sure not to delete any system files or folders in system32 directory. This process may cause system errors.
  2. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Be Careful:

The moment you unlock an object, you should look carefully at the name of the process that controls it. Otherwise, you risk stopping important Windows processes. This process may Windows operating system.
