Windows 7: Folder stuck in folder lock, forgot password

Folder stuck in folder lock, forgot password

I had used Folder Lock way back in 2013, looks like one of my cousin accidentally locked one of the folders using Folder Lock, he doesn't remember the password.

I just found out the folder it had some adult content in the folder, I tried removing the software - I can't using the uninstall application in the software's folder

Tried using Uninstall programs - it said software was already uninstalled & removed itself from list
tried removing the folder via search - I can't

I'm having the unlicensed version of 6.5.8

I would really appreciate some help in at least deleting the folder, I don't care about the software as I don't use it. I can't even see the folder when try to view the directory, its actually placed under E:\

I found this code in google search for a related query:

Code:
to remove password  
- First close Folder lock and  show hidden file and System hidden file  
 select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. 
Select the View Tab. 
Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders. 
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option. 
Click Apply ,  OK  

- and  Delete "win_mpwd_sys.dat"  From  
C:\ProgramData 
C:\Users\Vortex\AppData\Local 
"C:\Windows\"                           in windows X86 Or   
"C:\Windows\SysWOW64"         in windows x64
But I don't see this win_mpwd_sys.dat file in any of my folders as listed above. My software is installed in D drive so I searched in there as well.

Sorry It is in breach of forum policy to assists with password related issues as we cannot be sure that the request is legitimate.

We also will not assist with unlicensed software due to copyright issues in addition to the fact that unlicensed copies are often illegal hacked versions
