Unlocker x64 is an Internet Explorer application that permits a person to quickly deal with certain types of error messages. By right clicking on certain error messages (like "file is in use in another program"), the error message is eliminated and a user can move forward with the task.

Pros

  • One of the main plusses associated with Unlocker x64 is that it deals with a variety of the "file in use somewhere else" error types messages that typically force a computer user to shut down and boot up again. Other types of messages eliminated by this program -- without hampering any of the computers operations in a negative way -- include "access denied" and "cannot delete file." In the end, these "error messages" oftentimes issue ... in error.
  • Another of the positive elements associated with Unlocker x64 is the fact that it works with a variety of different operating systems, including a spectrum of different derivations of Windows operating systems -- including the most recent versions of Windows.
  • If an error message actually is appropriately displayed, Unlocker x64 identifies why it is occurring. For example, if a file really is in use by another program, Unlocker x64 directs a user to that program and permits him or her the ability to deal with it, rather than shut everything down. The application provides a far more effective way of dealing with these types of issues.

Cons

  • At the present time, Unlocker x64 is not without what some people consider a fairly substantial drawback. When Unlocker x64 is downloaded, at least one and potentially two other applications trundle along with it. There is not obvious notification to a person downloading that this is occurring. Specifically, bloatware is the additional product most often that is installed along with Unlocker x64. Users are told it is a recommended component of the Unlocker x64 download, which accurately is not a technically accurate statement.
  • Another complaint associated with involves a reconfiguration of Internet Explorer and Firefox following a download. This occurs in conjunction with the extraneous applications that download with Unlocker x64.
