It happens many times that we come across a file or a suspicious malware that gets locked to the system. Since the malware has locked itself, deleting it is not at all possible and we get some error message saying “The file is used by another program”.
From the makers of the very famous Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (one that I usually recommend) here is another tool to remove all locked malware files in the computer. So if you come across a file locked to Windows just give this software a try.
FileAssassin uses advanced techniques to unload modules, close remote handles, and terminate processes to remove all the locked Malware files in the system.
What you need to do is just download the tool, unzip it and run the installer. Run the tool and drag and drop the file to it or select the location of the file, choose the removal method and that’s it, you are done.
With the developers being that of Malwarebytes’ Antimalware, you don’t need to worry about its quality.
