I have used and loved Unlocker in the past. (Helps delete files that are in use by running programs.)

The site that hosted it was http://ccollomb.free.fr/

It seems to be dead now. Anyone know a reputable source where I can get this tool now?

just to let you know that the site is back online and the author apologized for the downtime, and set up a mirror: cedrick.collomb.perso.sfr.fr/unlocker –  Damien Jan 22 '10 at 22:43
    
Both links with "collomb" in the name are dead/outdated now; the site is currently (Aug 2011) at emptyloop.com/unlocker. –  Jonas Heidelberg Aug 30 '11 at 15:36

FileHippo and Softpedia have the latest version.

You may also be interested in LockHunter, another freeware tool which works similarly:

The new website is here http://www.emptyloop.com/unlocker/

Ignore poor software like lockhunter and fileassassin, just use Unlocker.

@Tom interesting the new new Unlocker website now has a comparison table. –  Steve-o Aug 31 '11 at 7:34
    
@Steve: That table lost me at the SysInternals Tools, which can do all of the features and a lot more. –  Tom Wijsman Aug 31 '11 at 7:45

+1 to what John T said

Also, if you're just having trouble with deleting individual files, Malwarebytes' FileASSASSIN is the most reliable software IMO.
