Deleting files at next operating system restart

LockHunter does it best to forcibly delete a file or a folder. But in some cases Windows doesn't allow you to delete it even if all connections to the file are closed. In this case LockHunter offers you to delete the file at next restart of the operating system. Just choose Other -> Delete At Next Restart menu item...
...restart the computer and the program inform you what files were deleted finally or not.

Displaying more information

When you check "More details" option you can see many hidden details of the process: process ID, service name (in case if it's a Windows service) and a process command line.

Auto check for upgrades

The program now automatically checks for upgrades once in 5 days. Besides you can check for upgrades manually via "Menu -> Check for updates" menu item.

Multimonitor support

LockHunter now behaves correctly on a multimonitor system, furthermore the program preserves its coordinates between restarts.

Ability to copy information to clipboard

Just press "Ctrl+C" at a process or a file or right-click and choose "Copy to clipboard" in order to put all information about the process to the clipboard.

Unified installer for 32 and 64 bit

Now you don't need to decide which operation system kind you have. Just download the only installer and use it on any Windows starting from XP.
