Unlocker was a valid useful program,however he took it up on himself to include a trogen and screwed it up for all. Mcafee will not even let it be installed any longer.

Unlocker.exe is a process of software Unlocker
esset antivirus block download as a malware
Unlocker is a program that shuts down processes to unlock files you can't access in your operating system. It also shuts down services to do this also. This is a tool used to help trouble shoot and fix PCs. I seriously doubt the programmer installed a Trojan on the software. You might want to get a valid copy with out the Trojan perhaps. It is a very useful tool. I use it quite often with Sysinternals for Microsoft Operating Systems which is a series of tools also used to help trouble shoot problems.
