Unlock Files & Folders And Define Post-Unlock Actions With UnlockMe

Whenever a file is in use by an application or Windows service, it gets locked by the system, preventing you from deleting, renaming or moving it. Even though it's a neat feature, sometimes Windows keep the file locked even when we are done with it, and states an annoying message "Cannot delete file: It is being used by another program” in a dialogue window. This problem can be so annoying that we even need to reset the PC in order to delete or move the file. Last month, we covered a tool named Free File Unlocker, which lets you unlock system-locked files and folders, and lets you perform delete, rename, copy and move actions, even when they are being used. If that application didn't fulfill your requirements or you simply want another alternative solution, then UnlockMe is what you should probably try. Akin to the previous application, it is a file unlocker utility that lets you unlock multiple files and folders at a time, and perform post-unlock actions on the files, folders and services. It can be especially useful when trying to delete viruses, or terminate malware processes that restart as soon as you shut them down or prevent you from deleting them. Read More

TinEye Client: Find Similar Images On Internet From Windows Context Menu

Looking up random images on the web is rather simple. Just go to Image tab of Google and search for any type of image that you want, but sometimes, there is an image stored in your computer, or that you find randomly on a website, that catches your attention. You instantly want to set the image as your desktop wallpaper, but you can't, because either the image is too small, or does not match the resolution of your monitor. If you try to force the image on to your background, it will not fit perfectly. In order to find the same image in different resolutions, normally you have to have its name. Back in 2009, Nakodari reviewed a web service called TinEye, which is a reverse image search engine that uses image identification technology, rather than watermarks and metadata to search similar images on the web for any given image. This allows you to search for the same image in several different formats and resolutions even if you don't have its name. Recently, they released a desktop client to perform reverse search for images without opening the browser.
