Бесплатный разблокировщик файлов

Бесплатная программа-разблокировщик файлов, заблокированных диспетчером файлов.

Случалась ли у Вас ситуация, когда нужно удалить файл, но система выдает сообщение о том, что он заблокирован? Наверняка, что «да». И не раз! Иногда мы сами по неосмотрительности забывали закрыть программу, которая работает с удаляемым файлом.

А часто и сама система (в лице «доблестного» Explorer.exe) оказывается блокировщиком документа, который нужно переместить, переименовать или же просто удалить. И вот в очередной раз перед нами выскакивает окно предупреждения :(. Не надоело его появление? ;) Если надоело, то сегодня я расскажу Вам, как раз и навсегда избавить себя от проблем с заблокированными файлами.

Как Вы уже могли понять, для этого нам потребуется очередная программка. Называется она незамысловато — Unlocker, что в переводе на русский звучит, как «разблокировщик» или даже «отмычка» :). Данная программа практически не имеет собственного интерфейса, соответственно не требует много ресурсов, а с пользователем «общается» посредством появляющихся в нужный момент диалоговых окон.

При помощи Unlocker Вы можете разблокировать все процессы, обращающиеся к определенному файлу, а затем удалить, переместить или переименовать его. Платным аналогом Unlocker является Locked Files Wizard:

Сравнение разблокировщика Unlocker с платным аналогом Locked Files Wizard

Разблокировка файла + +
Удаление/переименование/перемещение + +
Разблокировка без перезагрузки + -
Интеграция в контекстное меню + -
Удаление процессов + -
Выгрузка библиотек + -

Unlocker в отличие от аналогов при возникновении сообщения о блокировке файла всегда пытается его разблокировать без перезагрузки компьютера, что выгодно отличает его от других (даже коммерческих, как видим) утилит. Только в случае невозможности сиюминутного «освобождения» файла, программа предложит нам произвести нужные изменения после перезапуска системы.

Установка Unlocker

А теперь небольшая «ложка дегтя» в описанную выше «бочку меда» — антивирус Nod32 упорно находит вирус (Win32.Adware) в последней версии Unlocker :(. Скорее всего, это, конечно же, ложное срабатывание на встроенный рекламный модуль от QuickStores, однако факт остается фактом.

Поступить в этой ситуации можно двумя способами: использовать официальную portable-версию (отсутствует мультиязычность) или все же временно отключить антивирус и произвести установку программы.

Если Вы поступаете последним образом, то на этапе инсталляции проследите, чтобы были сняты галочки с пунктов, связанных с QuickStores (а то мало ли что…):

Характерно, что после установки программы и полного сканирования антивирусом, никаких подозрений у Нода не возникло (отсюда и предположение о ложности тревоги).

Интерфейс Unlocker

Итак, после установки в трее появляется значок модуля Unlocker-ассистент:

Если кликнуть на нем правой клавишей мыши, можно увидеть небольшое меню, в котором можно отключить автозапуск программы, скрыть значок или же просто закрыть Unlocker.

Предлагаю перед началом работы также заглянуть в папку, в которую мы установили программу:

Здесь помимо уже упомянутого Ассистента и пары библиотек, можно обнаружить исполняемый файл непосредственно самого Unlocker’а. Если запустить его, то мы увидим окошко «Обзор папок», в котором при желании можно найти файл, подлежащий разблокировке и попытаться произвести над ним нужные действия.

Работа с программой

Однако чаще всего Unlocker используется в автоматическом режиме. То есть программа сама начинает действовать, если появляется сообщение о блокировке того или иного файла. Для примера предлагаю произвести простой эксперимент.

Создайте любой текстовый документ, откройте его, напечатайте пару строк, затем сверните текстовый редактор и попытайтесь удалить редактируемый файл. Система сразу «ругнется» на Вас, мол: «чего это Вы там удумали?» :). И вот тут появляется наш Unlocker:

Он сразу определяет блокирующую программу и предлагает нам совершить ряд действий для удаления файла. Самый радикальный способ — «Удалить процесс». Однако он не всегда подходит, поскольку может затронуть другие работающие процессы (например, если открыто несколько документов или блокировщиком является Explorer.exe).

Поэтому советую использовать кнопки «Разблокировать» (если блокировщик один) или «Разблокировать все» (если несколько). В этом случае удаляется только сам путь к редактируемому файлу, а соответственно обрывается его связь с блокирующей программой. При этом все внесенные изменения сохраняются в буфере обмена, и Вы можете продолжить работу с текстом, сохранив его в новый файл без каких-либо потерь!

Однако это еще не все. Unlocker позволяет нам производить нужные действия с разблокированным файлом, не покидая собственного окна:

Для этого следует воспользоваться выпадающим меню в левом нижнем углу. Здесь, как мы уже говорили, есть несколько вариантов действий: от простого удаления, до копирования файла в буфер обмена. Если мы хотим произвести одно из автоматических действий, то это нужно сделать до нажатия кнопок «Удалить процесс» или «Разблокировать».

В большинстве случаев вышеописанные действия оказываются эффективными, однако случаются и «запущенные» случаи. Но и тогда Unlocker не сдается :):

После выбора нужного действия Unlocker еще раз попытается «расправиться» с файлом. Если вторая попытка увенчается успехом, то Вы увидите лаконичное, но гордое сообщение:

Если же таковой не последует, то Unlocker в итоге все равно удалит файл, но только после перезагрузки компьютера.

Выводы

Что радует, так это то, что у программы практически отсутствуют минусы, которые так характерны для некоторых утилит. Можно даже сказать, что Unlocker является в своем роде эталоном для приложений подобного типа.

Судите сами: практически 100% срабатывание многоуровневого (с перезагрузкой и без) механизма разблокировки файлов, необремененный деталями интерфейс и сравнительно низкое ресурсопотребление!

Единственный недостаток Unlocker — возможное наличие вируса в последней версии программы, но если для Вас непринципиален языковой вопрос, то можете спокойно пользоваться портативной английской версией утилиты ;).

Unlocker 1.8.9 - 8/3/2010

The rumors of me not working on Unlocker have been greatly exaggerated. I have been very busy with pushing the envelope at work, MBA studies during evenings and week-ends, and life during the time left.

Still, I finally had a little time to address all the reported issues on Unlocker, and Unlocker now supports Windows 7. 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.

Finally, I addressed the topic of false positives with Unlocker on my my blog. There is no malware in Unlocker and there will never be. And for the record I am not the only one having similar issues.

Unlocker 1.6.6 - 13/07/2005

- Added option to move/rename the object Unlocked instead of just deleting it. Thanks to Michael for the suggestion - Fixed a bug which could cause a reboot. Thanks to Mohammad Khadhrawi for his help while debugging - Fixed a slow down during the parsing of all system handles. Unlocker should now be as fast as versions prior to 1.6.3 since the slow down appeared in 1.6.3 - Fixed the slow update check.

If a new version has been released Unlocker will inform you only once about it. This can be turned off during the installation in the components section. This will require Unlocker to connect to the internet every time it checks for a new version. For those curious Unlocker is only sending "GET /unlocker/version.txt HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: www.emptyloop.com\r\n" and nothing else. Thanks to Jean-Paul Chavant and Osman Zeki for the suggestion.

Unlocker 1.6.4 - 15/06/2005

- Due to popular demand, I have added support for other languages. Unlocker is now available in Chinese (Simplified), English, French and Japanese. Thanks to Chen Xi Yang for the Chinese translation. Thanks to Takahiko Nishio and Taeko Tanaka both from the Windows 100% Japanese magazine for the Japanese translation. French translation done by me since I am French :)

Unlocker 1.6.3 - 30/05/2005

- Added a tab-stop on the handles list. Thanks to Michael D. Lawler for the suggestion - Added a check-box to delete file or folder after unlocking its handles - Added a button to kill processes when unlocking handles is not enough to delete a file such as C:\Documents and Settings\username\Cookies\index.dat - Fixed a bug causing Unlocker to hang when a DLL can not be Unloaded such as wininet.dll for example

Unlocker 1.6.2 - 14/05/2005

- Fixed a bug when Unlocker was passed an old dos type path as a parameter - Added some more error messages for privileges settings. More informations in the FAQ. Thanks to Vidziu for his help while debugging - Reduced executable size from 72KB to 56.5KB

Unlocker 1.6.1 - 10/05/2005

- Filtered modules locked by processes to only list DLLs - Unlocker.exe is not packed anymore. Since even MEW was reported as a false positives with poor products such as Norman anti-virus and BOClean anti-trojan. Sad but true.

Unlocker 1.6 - 09/05/2005

- DLLs locked by processes are now listed - DLLs locked by processes can be unloaded. This make of Unlocker a very useful tool against viruses, trojan and worms that attach DLLs to processes to be invisible. Again I strongly advise to be extremely careful with this functionnality - Window position and columns sizes are now remembered by Unlocker. Thanks to Michael for the suggestion - Hovering tooltip displayed when content do not fit in a column. Thanks to Michael for the suggestion - Changed back to MEW since WinUPack is wrongfully detected as a virus by poor anti-viruses such as McAfee. Unlocker will never contain any virus and it is a shame that McAfee is not able to unpack files packed with WinUPack, and properly unacceptable for a professional tool. Generally speaking if you have any doubt about a file you can submit a file to be scanned by several anti-viruses Virus Total and Jotti VirusScan. Those sites do not install anything on your machine, you just submit a file to them and they scan it by over 13 different anti-viruses. Thanks to all users who had problems for their support

Unlocker 1.5.2 - 07/05/2005

- Fixed a bug that made Unlocker miss handles when the internal names were in internal old dos 8.3 format. Any file from C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Local Settings\Temp for example and many others - Fixed the randomness of the input focus rectangle, now the Quit button always have the input focus when starting Unlocker - Saved 2KB by changing the exe packer. It was the very good MEW and now it is the even better WinUPack

Unlocker 1.5.1 - 05/05/2005

- Now you have the choice during install between the Explorer extension or a SendTo shortcut or both or neither. Thanks to Icfu and Marcus for the suggestion - Added a silent mode for people who want to use unlocker as a command line. The syntax is: unlocker.exe filename /S (or -S) and it will unlock all found handles without showing the window. Thanks to Ghenadie Cotaga for the suggestion

Unlocker 1.5 - 03/05/2005

- Fixed another bug with network mapped drives - Fixed the default association bug for W2K - Added "Unlock All" button. Of course I do not need to remind you to be very careful with this and not to try to unlock all handles on C: for example

Unlocker 1.4 - 02/05/2005

- At last Unlocker works on Windows 2000!!! - Major speedup when listing large number of locks by caching icons of same process

Unlocker 1.3 - 30/04/2005

Unlocker 1.2 - 29/04/2005

Many thanks to Icfu for the tip. - Unlocker has now an application icon - Mapped local and network drives bug fixed - Unicode bug fixed - Root drives working now

Unlocker 1.1 - 26/04/2005

- Message box showing no locks when no locks are active making people feel sure the tool is running :D - High privilege processes included in the list now, showing pagefile.sys now for example, I do not recommend unlocking those - Showing children locks of folders.

Unlocker 1.0 - 24/04/2005

- My antivirus complains about Unlocker, is there any malware? No, Unlocker will always be 100% safe, check my blog for more info.

- Unlocker stopped working, what should I do? Uninstall Unlocker, reboot, delete all registry keys containing Unlocker, reboot, reinstall.

- Your site was down, is there an official mirror somewhere? http://cedrick.collomb.perso.sfr.fr/unlocker/ and I am working on a more robust long term solution.

- Does unlocker work on Windows Vista and Windows 7? Yes. If you want to disable UAC globally, go to "Control Panel" then "User Accounts" then again "User Accounts" then "Turn User Account Control" and set it to Off, then restart your computer.

- Does unlocker work on 64 bit versions of Windows? Yes, since version 1.9.0.

- Can Unlocker be run in command line? Yes! Unlocker -H for command line options.

- What is "Error Debug Privileges"? It means that your Local Security Settings do not allow a Debug Privilege for your profile. Read Microsoft's documentation and set "Debug Programs" rights.

- What is "Error Backup Privileges"? It means that your Local Security Settings do not allow a Backup Privilege for your profile. Read Microsoft's documentation and set "Back up files and directories" rights.

- How to set privileges on Windows XP home edition? Download the resource kit here and from the command line set the privileges you need: SeBackupPrivilege, SeDebugPrivilege and SeLoadDriverPrivilege. Here is the example for the debug privileges: ntrights +r SeDebugPrivilege -u YourAccountName

- How to have Unlocker Explorer extension run in silent mode? I strongly advise not to use this, you should always look which processes lock a file, because some of them might be valid. However if you wish to ignore those recommendations install this in your registry.

- How to delete index.dat? It is very simple: 1/ in explorer right click the index.dat file and chose Unlocker, 2/ Select "Delete" in left bottom corner, 3/ click "Unlock All" and you are done!

- I unlock all handles but I still can not manually delete the file, and when I try again to unlock the file unlocker find again some locks, what should I do? Select "Delete" before clicking "Unlock All".

- Why do my firewall says that Unlocker is trying to connect to the internet? Since Unlocker 1.6.5, during installation you have an option to automatically check for updates. Reinstall Unlocker without this option if you want to turn it off. For those curious Unlocker is only sending "GET /unlocker/version.txt HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: www.emptyloop.com\r\n" and nothing else.

- How to translate Unlocker in my language? Download this file, translate it and email it at [email protected]

- Is this website "http://www.pcbutts1.com/" authorised to distribute Unlocker? No it is not.

- What is Unlocker Assistant? Unlocker Assistant stays in your system tray bar and automatically launches Unlocker if you are trying to delete/rename/move a file that is locked. So for those who use Unlocker Assistant, no need to right click files or folders anymore. This feature can be deactivated during the install.

- Which visual style is used in the screenshots? Crystal dlb 2
