"crashed computer"

May 03, 2008  |  By mileschap

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.6

Pros

Great idea if it had worked!

Cons

Attempted to unlock & delete a file in WinXP Explorer and it caused computer to crash. At that time had Firefox open and lost bookmarks & settings, then spent 1 hour restoring.

Also on the author's website there is no link for comments, user reviews, or a forum.

Pros

It did unlock the program I wanted without any nasty consequences to the overall machine software. Recommended. Easy to use also.

"Monitors User Input"

April 22, 2008  |  By cajrh7

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.6

Pros

Low overhead, does it's job, seems to be well written. UI incorporation is a nice touch.

Cons

When I installed it, zonealarm warned me it was trying to set itself up to monitor user input (which means it could act as a keylogger). It also attempted to connect to the internet everytime I use it. I don't know why it would need that, and disabling it didn't effect peformance.

A bit of research on the ip: it's warcry.com; That's a bit odd.

"It simply works as advertised, no conflicts,minimal overhead"

March 13, 2008  |  By Howlinwynd

 |  Version: Unlocker 1.8.6

Pros

This is an unobtrusive little program that is near to impossible to stump when it comes to deleting locked files. Even with the tray helper enabled,it only uses 1.7 MB of RAM, no CPU time. Without tray enabled(not too useful anyways) it uses no measurable resources. Just use R-Click context menu.

Cons

There is no downside
