NoVirusThanks File Governor

Product Overview

NoVirusThanks File Governor is an advanced program which allows for files and folders within the system to be unlocked so that normal file I/O operations can be completed when normally they would not be able to be due to operating system restrictions for files currently in use. Once a file or folder is unlocked you will be able to force-close the file’s handle, rename, delete, etc.

I am sure that at least one time, you have run into a situation where you wanted to delete a file, but Windows wouldn’t allow you to do it because the file was already in use by another program or because the access to the file you wanted to delete was denied for some reasons. In this case you should know these messages:

  • The source or destination file may be in use
  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
  • The file is in use by another program or user
  • There has been a sharing violation
  • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected

You can use NoVirusThanks File Governor to safely close all the opened handles of a file or to safely close all the opened files inside a folder so that you will be able to delete the files and the folder without problems. This tool is useful also to unlock files locked by malware or unload malicious DLL files.

NoVirusThanks File Governor is fully compatible with the following 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1
