    I never had much luck with unlocker for some reason. I know others swear by it but it often just doesn't work for me for some reason. Perhaps I use it wrong somehow.

    If you want to delete something then you can boot into recovery - from there you can then do what you want.

    Even better (and much easier as it has a GUI) boot into this - Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
