How to unlock all files in Windows 7

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am using Windows 7 and I have noticed that some of the files on my system have become locked and now I can’t delete them although I have administrator privileges. These files are not being used by a remote user as they are not shared. What has caused locking of the files and how can I unlock all files in Windows 7?

How to unlock all files in Windows 7



The files you face problem to unlock or delete them are corrupted with Virus or using by another program running with your system. You did not mention the present state of those files. However, to recover this problem you need to install an updated antivirus and try to scan full of your system carefully. Follow the performance of your Antivirus up to satisfactory level.

You can also close all other programs running with your system and try to delete them. Sometimes files which are using by other programs behave like a corrupted file. So do the needful. It will be ok.   

I hope you understand it.
