Yes in some very rare cases, unlocker won't be able to find file locks yet you will be unable to overwrite or delete a file. In some cases, a simple restart can fix that, in some cases going to Safe Mode may do the trick. In extreme cases, I boot onto Ubuntu CD just to remove those clutters onto my unit (under Win 7).

However, my main concern of using unlocker is to familiarize myself more with which current processes has put a lock on a file. This process can either be a legitimate exe or a malware and it is always good to know which is which.
