    Review Unlocker

    Has it ever happened to you that you want to delete a program or file from your computer, but you get different messages indicating that it is not possible to perform this task? Forget about these problems. Unlocker is an application designed to end the blockage that these documents, files, and even software installed on your computer seem to have so that you can delete them without delay.

    If we had to describe this program in just one word, it would probably be "simplicity." And it doesn't matter if you have never used such a content-unblocking system before; you will understand how it works in seconds. All we have to do is open it, search through the folders for that file that, for some reason, we can't delete from our computer, and unlock it in seconds.

    What error messages does this service help to overcome? The following:

    • The source or destination file may be in use.
    • Ensure the disk is not full or write-protected and the file is not currently in use.
    • There has been a sharing violation.
    • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
    • The file is in use by another program or user.

    Not only that, but this application integrates with Windows Explorer, so if you have a file that you can't delete, right-click on it, and one of the options that will appear will be to open it with this system. Once you have done so, you will be able to unlock it in seconds, and then, if you want to, delete it naturally or through Unlocker itself.

    In either case, you will see that the options provided by this program are relatively few, generally simple, and almost all types of tasks that we can try to perform with any software or file that resists being deleted:

    • Delete
    • Rename
    • Move

    However, you have to consider that on some occasions, due to the type of task that this program carries out, it will be necessary to restart the computer so that the changes can be observed, for example, when an installed program is eliminated. Unlocker will not force you to restart the computer immediately, but you should remember this as sometimes it might seem to you that it has offered no solution when it has not.

    Then, if you want to delete large content, this helper will show you a progress bar so you can always know how much time is left before you can finally get rid of the file in question. This is one of the latest features that have been added to this software, and it is worth mentioning because it is not that it has undergone significant updates since its launch.

    It may sound unbelievable, but beyond that, you will see that this program does not have any other features or Settings. It has been developed to unlock content that cannot be deleted and only takes care of that. It is fair to recognize that it is one of the best services within this segment, so although it is not too aesthetically striking, there is nothing to blame.

    We could not fail to mention Unlocker Assistant. This software will remain practically immobile on our computer unless we try to delete a locked file or documents, at which point it will be activated. We cannot run it ourselves, but it will remind us, in case we need it, that we have this application to give us a hand.

    Having made these clarifications, we would also like to point out that it hardly consumes system resources. You can install it on your latest generation Windows computer or on a machine that already has several years of use. It is usually older PCs that, as a result of the accumulation of errors in the system, are gradually showing more and more of these messages of inability to remove content.

    How much does Unlocker cost? In truth, it is a free program that we can download without paying a single cent. However, it should be noted that the creators of the program ask users who take advantage of this valuable tool to make some donation through PayPal or to use their credit card. That's up to the individual and what they feel the program deserves.

    Otherwise, our experience with this little friend has been very positive. We have already commented that it has little to offer from a visual and imaginative point of view. Still, it is more than satisfactory if you want to get rid of those annoying messages and files that resist deletion. In the cases we have tested its results, it has managed to unblock all the contents and allow us to delete them without wasting time.

    Finally, it is also worth mentioning, because it has happened to us, that some antivirus programs warn users about the dangers of installing or running this program. However, its creators clarify in the download web that they watch over the clients' security and that Unlocker has no viruses or malware. So if your antivirus detects it, ignore it and start using this great little program.
