    Does it play nicely with 2008 R2? I was slightly wary of installing it because it adds itself into the shortcut menu.

    We only have 1 2008 r2 DC at the moment (come the 23rd we will have lots though) and it has worked just fine on that.

    I can add in with unlocker, excellent program. I use it on 2008 R2 without trouble. Last night I used it where Sophos could not delete a virus and unlocker killed it in a second!

    I rebooted the server again in this second case, and again was able to delete after the reboot. Gah! Windows! Annoying!

    Extremely annoying! I had a situation yesterday where a teacher was trying to move folders on a windows 7 machine and it said that the folders were in use by another program. Which was rubbish as even after a reboot it was doing the same thing. I used unlocked and it moved the folders immediately lol.

    To delete files / folder locked by the system.
    1.- Locate the folder c:\users\xxx
    2.- Try to take ownership of the folder and subfolder : (it will probably failed)
    3.- If not failing, give you full rights to the folders and subfolder and delete it.
    4.- But since itís failing, we need to find witch windows process lock the files.
    5.- Start Microsoft SysInternal\procexp.exe
    6.- Go to find, find handle
    7.- Do a search c:\users\xxx
    8.- Take not of the PID number that is locking the files (second column)
    9.- Go back and Kill process or Kill process tree if itís a tree.
    10.- Go back to the folder and take the owner ship of the folder and subfolder c:\users\xxxx
    11.- Give you full rights of the folder and subfolder c:\users\xxx
    12.- Delete the c:\users\xxx folder
    13.- Log back the user, he will have a fresh new profiles.

    How to take owner ship and give you full rights of a folders and subfolders
    1.- Locate your c:\users\xxx folder
    2.- Right mouse on it | properties | Security | Advanced | Owner | Edit | Choose your ad account | Replace Owner on subcontainers and objects | Apply
    3.- Go back to Permissions tab | change permissions | add your ad account | Full control | Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object
    4.- Now delete your c:\users\xxx folder.
