    If you use a computer, you've probably come across at least one of the following messages:

    • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
    • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use
    • The source or destination file may be in use
    • The file is in use by another program or user

    Lockhunter seems to okay for me, well most of the time. If not safe mode helps.

    I use Unlocker when Take Ownership isn't working. However, I'm looking for portable alternative. :)

    I have Revo Uninstaller Free installed and I see it has hunter mode. Isn't that for uninstalling a program?
