How to Remove FOLDER LOCK with lost password

This worked for me.
clipped from creafilgo.blogspot.com
Well, I’m one of those people out there who accidentally forgot my Folder Lock password b’coz I haven’t used the software I installed for quite a month. It’s sort of my short memory loss syndrome. I was struggling for 5 days trying to remember that brilliant password I created that was somewhat stuck on whichever part of my miniature size brain.
Just download any full version copy of folder lock with similar version of the one your using, example Folder lock v5.7.5 or something like that. Then just Install it. Then let it run automatically after the installation. You will be prompt to login using a new folder lock user id and folder lock registration key. You can use this
FolderLock User ID: NewSoft15805
FolderLock Registration Key: 221281703
After you have entered the information above, follow the programs procedures until registration is finish. Start folder lock and when the program ask for the password, use the folder Registration Key stated above.

  2. Well, like I said – the above article helped me get rid of it. If it doesn’t help you, then you’ll need to keep looking. Good luck! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a program that was more difficult to uninstall out of my system.

  3. hi it work for me

    Please try this, run registry by typing ‘regedit’ after clicking Start button in Windows and then click Run. Then delete this string value:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > FolderLock6 > LastLockerPath

    Once you are done, try uninstalling from Start menu > Programs > Folder Lock
    and then select uninstall.

    After uninstalling Folder Lock 6 please go to My Documents and search for a file name locker with extension (*FLK) or (*FLKW) and delete. Do not forget to restart you computer before trying to delete or to open you locked files. This way solved my problems and I could remove 15GB of locked files by Folder Lock 6.

  7. ho provato normalmente dal pannello di controllo ma non c’è il programma poi ho iniziato ad eliminare files dal registro sistema, niente da fare. COME RIMUOVERE QUESTO SOFTWARE??? help my
    I tried normal from the control panel, unfortunately there is no program! I started deletted/eliminate files off the register sistem windows. nothing to do. HOW TO REMOVE THIS SOFTWARE?? help my

  8. Just reinstall the software (same version) & it will again show the locked folder.

  9. i downloaded a trial version of folder lock 6.0 and when i used it , it restarted the windows it does this everytime so now how can i delete the “.flk” file made by the software . if anybody knows please help me

  10. If it keeps restarting, go to regedit as explained above and change the value of lock and shutdown keys from 1 to 0. Then you can keep trying different passwords.
    Do not buy the full version as it says above in order to unlock, just does not help. Folder Lock sucks at its customer support, it’s a great tool though.

  11. where i can the software

    don’t worry
    its very simple
    run your computer in safe mode
    and then start folder lock
    it will run and don’t ask for password
    and then unlock your files and when you open your
    folder lock its ask you username and password
    give the username and pass and and then its need
    new password give a new pss and uninstall your forlder lock
    and restart your pc and enjoy…………
    hope this help.

  17. Thanks for posting that! People have had so much trouble with Folderlock, especially removing it.

  18. IT IS SIMPLE STUPID!!!

  19. KISS in action: “.” is all you need to do. Folder Lock’s front door is like getting into Fort Knox and its back door is like an unguarded screen door…that is wide open!!!

    I in some cases I could see the FOLDER LOCK folder and others I could not and I could not remember my password. I simply searched: “.” and I had access to every file on the drive as if the system had no protection. Well as you might agree, FOLDER LOCK is crap for protection. I moved my files to another folder. FOLDER LOCK is still “there,” but of no use.

    Key to the screen door: search “.” …. Keep it simple stupid!

  20. i lost my folder lock password of trial version. i want to unstill it please help me sir, plz sir

    Vijay

  87. Hey Mano. I tried to follow you instructions but I got confused on the ‘delete this string value’ part. Are you saying that I am to delete the whole registry string such as HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > FolderLock6 > LastLockerPath or should I delete only ‘LastLockerPath’? Should I also delete ‘FolderLock6′ too? Also, is the above info to delete Folder Lock 6 or is it to recover my files? If this deletes Folder Lock 6, what happens to my files and where will I look to find them? I’ve been trying to open Folder Lock 6 for some months now all to no avail and the softwar is crap , with a very poor support service. :(e

  88. Thank you thank you thank you so much………It worked out……..
