LockHunter 3.3 stable released!

Nov 29th, 2019

We are happy to announce availability of LockHunter 3.3. In this version we have reworked the user interface, added multiple file selection, support for drag and drop, added an ability to manage files to delete on OS restart, improved performance and fixed some bugs.

Reworked UI

We have improved the user interface to make it more intuitive, simple and modern. The program main icon was changed as well.

Manage Delete On OS Restart File List

Now, when you added some files or folders to delete on OS restart you can see the link at the bottom with the number of files to remove:


By clicking on it you can see or remove files you have added to removal on OS restart

Multiple file selection

Now you can choose several files or folders at once and the program will show you all locking processes and allows to delete them.

Drag and drop support

It’s now possible to drag and drop files or folders from Explorer or a file manager to the program’s window.

Bug fixes

  • Improved performance of locking process scan
  • GDI objects count grows with each UI refresh
  • The icon in the Explorer context menu had white background, now it’s transparent
  • If asked to delete directories on OS restart it falsely reported they were deleted, while actually it didn’t that
  • The process list didn’t always scroll with mouse wheel
  • “Delete selected processes from disk” function always displayed false result even if file was deleted
  • In WinXP in some cases “Cannot open service control manager” was displayed

Changes in 3.3 stable from the previous beta

  • Progress bar is displayed on search for the locking processes
  • “Menu…” link is replaced by “Hamburger” icon
  • The process list didn’t always scroll with mouse wheel
  • Wrong processes displayed on non existing path (ver 3.3 bug)
