[] PLUS :)
> Interface provided is real simple for users, everything is easily accessible and well modularized at GUI level at least...
> Under a test by it detected 98% malwares from 500+K Samples

[] MINUS :(
> the Security provided is simply signature based, so malwares fooling advanced Security Solutions can easily fool it too...
> a very basic level security, call it a stripped down version of OneCare Live Security Solution

> Don't have any effective 'Dynamic Detection Technique'

Unlocker 1.8.7

Unlocker [ yup its Freeware ;) ]

If Windows shows problems deleting:

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.

It lets you unlock to delete/move/rename and even schedule to boot time if unable to do it currently... it wouldn't forget.
