FileASSASSIN Portable 1.06

FileASSASSIN is a straightforward Malwarebytes tool which enables you to delete most files at a click, even if they're in use or protected by malware.

The program is very simple to use. Just drag and drop a file onto the text area, click Execute, and that's it: FileASSASSIN will close the file's handles, unload modules, terminate the file's process if applicable, and then try to delete it for you.

Or, if that doesn't work then select "Use delete on Windows reboot function", restart your PC, and Windows itself might be able to delete the file.

While this can be very helpful in trying to manually clean up a malware infection (or just delete a file when Windows won't allow it), you need to use FileASSASSIN with extreme caution. If the file in question can't be deleted because it's in use by some critical system process, then wiping it could break your system to the point where you won't even be able to launch it in Safe Mode. So don't click "Execute" unless you're entirely sure what you're doing. And even then, have a full system backup to hand as well, just to be safe.

Note that this is the portable version of FileASSASSIN.
