Thanks for the visual The Howling! This tool (File Assassin,) works as good if not better than Move on Boot or Unlocker - which are other traditional tools used in these type of cases, but have seem to have become almost obsolete IMHO since it is commonly found already present with MBAM as a "unnoticed tag-along!"

But the there tools are linked-out as well if they are of more interest to someone or in case they do work better in some specific case (of which I cannot find a real world example of as of current day.)
