Hi gilnic

What operating system have you got and what version of Eraser is it ?

Thanks.

You'll have to terminate explorer to remove both DLLs.

And after which you'll have to manually unregister the DLLs from the registry so they won't be loaded by Explorer. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers and delete Erasext.

Just restart your computer if you can't find explorer.

'taskkill' is not recognised as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.
