Delete locked malware files on your PC
- Unload and unlock file modules
- Delete infected files
- Simple interface
- Drag and drop feature doesn't always work
FileASSASSIN is a handy little tool that lets PC users delete locked files that contain malware on their computer.
Even the best antivirus software could potentially miss a threat to your PC. Many times when malware ends up on your computer, it comes along with its own form of protection to make it difficult for you to remove it. If you have files on your computer that won't let you open them and your PC's acting a little strangely, it's possible this might be exactly what's going on. Common error messages include "Cannot delete file: Access is denied" and "The source or destination file may in be use." If these aren't malware infected files, it's possible the file has just gone into lockdown, which is still a problem.
FileASSASSIN can help you open these files and, if need be, remove them from your computer entirely. With its simple interface, you really only need to click and drag the problem files to get started unlocking them. Or, if you'd prefer, FileASSASSIN lets you browse your computer for files. FileASSASSIN has options that include unlocking locked file modules, unloading modules, terminating the file's process and deleting it entirely. There's only one thing to be aware of - make sure the file is actually a problem before taking any drastic steps.
During testing, FileASSASSIN wouldn't always allow certain files to be unlocked through the click and drag feature, but otherwise it worked pretty comprehensibly. The FileASSASSIN layout is a little plain, but it gets the job done.
FileASSASSIN is also available in a portable version.
If you're concerned about locked malware files on your computer, FileASSASSIN will help you take care of the risk and get them unlocked and even deleted quickly.
