"Unlocker" not working on Windows 7 ?? Try "LockHunter"

Unlocker by http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/ was a nice tool to find, unlock, delete files when Windows explorer can't delete them (as they are locked by other processes).

After my upgrade to Windows 7 - 64bit, Unlocker tool stopped working. Even the 64bit from author's official site doesn't work at all (no window shows up after running the application).

So, for whatever it is worth and whoever is looking for an alternative, LockHunder by http://lockhunter.com is a great alternative, works much like Unlocker and is working without any hiccup (so far) on my Windows 7.

I got it working by uninstalling both versions of Unlocker and then re-installing the 64-bit version.

Thank you.. Unlocker was such a great tool - I think this is a fine replacement.

I had problems getting it to run on Windows 7, had to install it as administrator for it to actually show its windows.

Thanks! Will try it. Unlocker was great, but after 7, all it would give me is the option for "After Reboot", which really was no option at all when one wants it unlocked NOW. :)
