Unable to delete a file?


thefreecountry.com, “The programs listed on this page are for situations where you have tried to delete, move or rename a file or folder (subdirectory) under Windows only to receive a dialog box with an error message like “Cannot delete [filename]: It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.” (or some other message about sharing violation or the file being in use).”

Before using any of these tools, it’ll be wise to try and scan your PC for viruses first.

And now, the links to the tools…thefreecountry.com

Update: You may also use TaskInfo but it’s not free! You may try it free for 30 days though. A comparison of some freewares and commercial wares that delete locked files can be found here
