LockHunter is a free tool to remove files blocked by something you don’t know. LockHunter is useful in combating malware and other programs that block files for no reason. Unlike other similar tools, it deletes files in Recycle Bin so that you can restore them if they are deleted by mistake.

Main characteristics:

  • Shows the processes locking a file or folder
  • Allows you to unlock, delete, copy or rename a locked file
  • Lets kill the locking process
  • Allows you to remove hard drive locking processes
  • Can unload DLLs from processes
  • Integrates into the explorer menu
  • It deletes the files in the recycle bin, so you can restore them if they are deleted by mistake
  • Supports 32 and 64 bit Windows

LockHunter 3.4.3 changelog:

  • Bug fixed: Winget could not read the program version, so it still showed LockHunter needing to upgrade

Portable version

  • Due to many user requests, we have added a portable edition of LockHunter. It is also provided as an installer but it allows the program to be installed on an external drive (or even a cloud drive) and then use it on any computer. The portable version stores its settings in a configuration file (rather than the registry) and saves the log file in its executable folder. It has no integration with Windows Explorer and as an installable version it requires administrative permissions. It will work on both 64-bit and 32-bit Windows (although less than 5% of our users are still on it).
