    I used unlocker, But not worked
    when i right click on file and then i click on unlock it shows a little window and says " No locking handle found"
    Then i choose action "delete"
    It says
    Success
    "The object was deleted"
    But the file is still there

    I also used "File shredder",
    But it's not working,
    when i try to shred files

    It says,

    "Some files can't shred because it's in use"
