After downloading from PC World a program called WhoLockMe (which is supposed to help get rid of persistent files) I find that when I try to open the program, I get the following error message: No file Name Specified Usage: "WhoLockMe [-m] [-f] filename" -m: Display the Dialog Box at the mouse position -f: Don't test if file exists. If anyone can tell me what this is all about, I'd appreciate it. JFH

jfh,

I think there may be a problem with the program itself.

The error that you are getting indicates that it was expecting a filename in the command line (ex. 'WhoLockMe persistentfile.dat'). But this is not the real issue.

The Install.bat file (included in the download) consists of the command: regsvr32 /s WhoLockMe.dll
The '/s' switch hides any messages that are generated. If you run this command from DOS window without the '/s' you get an error indicating that the DLL file could not be registered (see attachment).

Had the DLL been successfully registered, you would be able to right-click on a 'persistent' file and select the option 'Who Lock Me?' from the menu. This would have sent the filename to the WhoLockMe.exe file, and the program would have properly executed.

I downloaded it myself and I get the same error. Sorry, but I don't know how to fix it. Hopefully, with this information, someone else will be able to come up with a solution for you.
