Works for me!

Doc
I already installed the take ownership option, but it still doesnt delete & gives me permission errors.

This is really frustrating.

One other thing to check in the special permissions - check that there is not a general deny permission on the Delete option, which will override all others

As for what the files are I think they are MSE update files that have not been properly deleted

^^MSSE identified a Trojan after the install. When checked the details, it says the file is ebay shortcuts.exe. Removed it. But still, right click context menu misses the unlocker option.

You should have unchecked that box during installation.

When installing anything pat attention to what it;s trying yo install along with the program itself.

How many installs have you seen that want you to download the Google toolbar.'

Look at post #13 , it is no virus

I am not complaining..but passing on a information. Juz tried the version of unlocker u have suggested to check if it works on my RC. But it didnt.
Anyways, I do not need this, since I use lockhunter. It serves my purpose.

Note: I unchecked the option to install eBay.
