Windows 7: Can't delete folder :| W7 HE x64

So I'm gonna be nagging till the end. What exactly does that unlocker do? I installed it and it just sits in my taskbar, no options nor actions available except for "Hide icon" and "Autostart". It doesn't do squat as far as I can see so far.

Right click folder, should be on context menu, click on unlocker and choose delete.

Well I tried to do that from the moment I installed it, but there is no such thing in my right click menu, otherwise I wouldn't have bother further. Maybe because it's not supported by Windows 7? I did "allow" for it on my Microsoft Security Essentials when I got a warning, but still nothing.

What I tried:

1. Restarted the computer
2. Tried to run "Start unlocker assistant" and "Start unlocker" in both simple and "as administrator"

no change, icon still sits in the taskbar doing nothing.

Well I don't have it in my right click menu, period. I guess I'll just have to take my chances with official microsoft windows support :|
