Very often Windows has a file you inexplicably can't delete. Its not being used -- you've even restarted the machine. It only happens once every month or two for me but its annoying enough that I'm very glad to have this program to handle it.

This program is real small and simple, and is perfect to whack those darn stubborn exe's that just won't DIE!
