Lockhunter - unlock problematic files

#1 Post by webfork » Tue Apr 19, 2016 12:43 pm

synopsis wrote:... a free tool to delete files blocked by something you do not know. LockHunter is useful for fighting against malware, and other programs that are blocking files without a reason. Unlike other similar tools it deletes files into the recycle bin so you may restore them if deleted by mistake.

Testing notes:
  • I only tested the 32-bit version on Win7. Version tested was 3.1.1

    Steps: Uniextract, run either Lockhunter,2 (the 32-bit version), or lockhunter,1 for 64-bit.

    Status: Portable, not stealth. There are very few settings to save but, like several other programs I've tested recently, there are a few incidental window settings saved to \HKU\Software\Lockhunter and a minor logfile to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\LockHunter,2\LockHunter,2.log.txt
