Add "Unlocker for Files and Folders" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista

Ever had such an annoying message given by Windows?

It has many other flavors:

Cannot delete file: Access is denied

There has been a sharing violation.

The source or destination file may be in use.

The file is in use by another program or user.

Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Unlocker is the solution!

1. Simply right click the folder or file and select Unlocker

2. If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will appear

3. Simply click Unlock All and you are done!

But for us Windows x64 users, the author says:

From a x64 stand point, it took me a couple of hours to get it fully working on my machine. I still have to sign the driver which might require a lot of paperwork, but hopefully it will not take long. For the impatient kind, I can provide alpha versions :)

Interestingly, now that I have a x64 machine, I had no alternative than to get Unlocker working. Despite the increased number of ersatz, none of them really did the job and I really had a motivation to get Unlocker working.

Jalaffa made the x64 alpha version available over here for download.

Thanks Night Owl, I didn"t see that Jalaffa had already post it.

Sorry for the double posting ^_^
