Tracking Down Great Software For You!

Don’t you hate when you go to delete a file or folder and it says that you can’t because it is in use? The worst part is that you can never figure out what the heck is using it. WhoLockMe will solve that problem for you because you will just have to right-click on the file that is in use and select the option “Who Lock Me.” It will then reveal the programs that are using it.

I have had this happen all the time to me, especially after I uninstall something and try to delete the folder that it left behind. It can normally be cleared up simply by restarting my computer but this tool will provide the answer that my curious mind is always wondering.

WhoLockMe is compatible with Windows NT, 2000, and XP.

Thanks to “Nate The Great” for the tip!

Some of the commenters are also mentioning Unlocker and FreeFile as other great (free) solutions for this problem.
