Fed up with the Windows Explorer message that I can’t delete a folder, because it’s locked. By who? I closed my Firefox and Eclipse and it’s still there. Short of killing my explorer.exe process like I always tool, I checked out a freeware tool called Unlocker.

Right-clicking the offending folder from Explorer and selecting Unlocker showed me it was really Explorer, but I had an option to “Unlock” it instead of killing the process. Quickly done.

Note: Remember to uncheck all other options when you install the tool (such as eBay shortcuts). I’m not sure what Assistant does, I unchecked it too.
