This efficient freeware application terminates process, unloads modules, and closes remote handles to rid your system of suspected malware files. FileAssassin's clear-cut interface includes drag-and-drop functionality to easily select the desired files. Or you can simply browse through your folders and select the process you want to terminate.

Any of the three malware removal options (unlock file handles, unload modules, and terminate file processes) are quick and effective. An additional option deletes the file after it is unlocked.

Some novice users may find it difficult to gauge the proper file to send to FileAssassin. Advanced users, on the other hand, will appreciate its command-line operations. Switches are available to run any of the options through a batch file process. Intermediate to advanced users looking for a convenient way to remove suspicious locked files will find this freeware effective.
