Force Delete

Sometimes you have files that you just want to get rid of. The problem is that your computer thinks you are still using them or you still need them. The solution? Download Force Delete.

Here is what the developer of Force Delete has to say.

This program’s purpose is to remove files or force deletion of files that may be used by other programs and cannot be normally deleted. Notice that there are cases when file deletion is impossible. Can integrate with Internet Explorer; after that, you can delete a file by right-pressing on it and selecting Force Delete.

Now you can get rid of those annoying files that you wouldn’t be able to get rid of before. Make sure that you are only deleting files that won’t get you in trouble. System files and dangerous things of that matter shouldn’t be messed with.

So is your computer hanging on you? Give Force Delete a shot and get rid of that file that is annoying you.

    The “Force Delete” program doesn’t seem to be available anywhere
    I can find. The links on this site are all wrong.

    None of the listed links work. Is there a working link?

  • Jeff

    It would be useful if the LINKS worked.
    Going to ftp://mirrors.aol.com/pub/cica/pc/winxp/dskutil/ForceDelete.zip
    is giving me the error message :

    550/pub/cica/pc/winxp/dskutil/ForceDelete.zip:No such file or directory

    Clearly that file is not there!

    Seems they have changed things round on the author’s Web site. You can get a working link here:

    I’ve got some files (powerpoint) that cannot be deleted using any of the several methods I’ve seen online – have used Unlocked, MoveonBoot, and tried deleting from DOS prompt (with and without explorer.exe running). I can move it using Unlocked (but not to Recycle Bin), that’s about it. I have even gone into Windows Registry and used the Rename function there, doesn’t work. Any more ideas?

    http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/ worked better for me.
    I ‘had’ a file which ‘force delete’ couldn’t delete. Unlocker did the job!

    DONT BOTHER EVEN WASTING YOU TIME DOWNLOADING THIS PIECE OF JUNK SOFWARE.
    ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS DELETE 4 FILES THAT NERO HAD ‘LEFT BEHIND’, THIS RUBBISH COULD NOT EVEN FIND THE FILES LET ALONE DELETE THEM. ANOTHER PIECE OF USELESS JUNK SOFWARE THAT JUST TAKES UP SPACE ON YOUR HARD DRIVE AND CAN NOT DO WHAT IT CLAIMS IT CAN. LETS SEE IF IT UNINSTALS CLEANLY OR WILL IT ALSO BE A ‘GIT’ TO GET RID OF.
