Boot Deleter is an application that adds itself to the Windows Explorer (shell) context menu and allows you to mark files and folders to be deleted when Windows next restarts. This allows you to delete items that are locked by running programs. Items can also be marked for deletion by passing the file/folder as a command-line argument or by dropping the item onto the Boot Deleter executable icon.
Please note that this application idea was suggested by a user and consequently serves a very specific purpose. It does not attempt to free locked files or folders by invalidating their handles without the need of a reboot. This feature will not be added to this application.
