"downloaded/run/foundfile/deleted/done"

February 19, 2012  |  By shirleyanneruss

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

excellent,congrats,those that say, trojan this, or bad that, ignore them. this does what all other software couldnt, it completely obliterated that damn google folder that remains after uninstal and cannot be budged

Cons

right,here is the how not install.
rule no1: open your lazy eyes you idiots that trash this, all you have to do is uncheck the little boxes so you stop the installation of third party toolbars and all the other junk.

Summary

it works, it works very well just remember slow down when installing and read the boxes as they appear, dont just press ok and then complain when you have 500 toolbars and your homepage has been reset to grannys knitted feetwarmers. besides, you that do not read these instructions should stay away from computers altogether

"Version 1.8.7 is dangerous !!"

October 19, 2009  |  By Nev

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

Version 1.8.5 works well without any dangers !

Cons

Version 1.8.7 contains the TrojanClicker:Win32/Yabector.gen

Summary

I am very surprised that CNET are still offering version 2.8.7 as a 'safe download' !!

"Top Class Tool"

March 04, 2008  |  By Jean Beattie

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

This must be one of the most useful little tools ever devised it uses very little memory but it sure has the clout to get rid of stuff that you don't want cluttering your drives when the rubbish tells you cannot remove it. It gives back the control of your computer to you and lets you decide what you want and what you no longer want.

"Perfect cure for deleting old read-only space eating folders and files!"

March 03, 2008  |  By Sorcerio

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

This program is small & installed on Vista quick and effortlessly. Got rid of my old XP "System Volume Information" folder and all files within it with 2 simple clicks! I spent a lot of time and grief trying to get rid of this folder. Tips on the internet weren't working for me. THIS WORKS!!! Got back 7 lost gigabytes of storage!

"Heck of a handy tool"

February 20, 2008  |  By johnnydollar4

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

I have used this more times than I can count. It is the perfect weapon against unwanted programs that you cant uninstall. You use unlocker and you can uninstall it then. Or at the very least delete it.

Cons

No Cons for me

"Worked surprisingly well"

February 09, 2008  |  By lueeluee

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

I was referred by Spyware Terminator support. I was having difficulty deleting an older version. This program did the trick and allowed me to delete the last piece, an extension shell. It is a small program and works instantly.

Cons

Not much information on the home site. I had to go to downloads to learn anything about it.

"Annoying, but it works!"

January 25, 2008  |  By GoldPirate

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.5

Pros

It works, and it works well! That's all that matters, isn't it? Simply right click the file you want to delete - but can't - and the file is gone before you know it.

Cons

Exactly what the editor said. The annoying Unlocker Assistant in your system tray, and another addition to your right click menu does get in the way over time.
