Delete Doctor v2.3 Software Review

aaaThis little program has been around for quite some time now and is very familiar to us. There is no third-party file that can stop Delete Doctor from deleting it, as long as you are running it as an administrator. The program is very appropriate if you have decided to manually get rid of software. We have decided to do a software review just to illustrate the capability and the preferences this otherwise small in size program has to offer to the user.

Delete Doctor – Main Features

One of the primary benefits of using this program is its small size. With only 2.38 MBs in size and taking up just 8.6 MB of RAM and next to none percentage from the CPU, this program allows to run multiple entities of it without having any negative after-effect on performance:


Furthermore, the software has different preferences that are mainly focused on allowing the user to eventually erase the file they want. Combined with a proper usage of Windows Search to find malicious files, this software makes the perfect tool to get you rid of a file, as long as you know its name.

Here are the main file-deleting options it gives to the user:

Deleting a file via DOS short name
This is a conventional method of deleting a file. It essentially runs a delete command in DOS with elevated privileges to delete the file.

Deleting a file via UNC name
This is essentially deleting a file by utilizing the usage of Universal Naming Convention in a click of a button.

Deleting a file on System Restart
This is one option that never fails. Every time we have encountered a file that cannot be deleted (and we have been using this software more than five years), this option succeeded. This is because it sets a command to delete the software on system boot, isolating it from other objects(for example, registry keys) that may prevent it’s deletion.

Deleting all files in a folder
This option is very suitable because it executes the following MS-DOS command to delete all the files in a folder in which one file has been selected via the “Browse” option:


The simple recipe of different methods to delete data makes this software perfect for everyday use on any Windows system. What is also good about it is that since the first version, it is completely free.

What We Like

There are several key features why we think this program is better than others:

  • Simplified.
  • Always does the job.
  • Very light.
  • You can run multiple entities.
  • Deletion of all objects in a folder.

What Is Missing

Since this program is very simple and it has been created with a simple purpose, there is not much to improve on it. However, we have few suggestions to make it even more recognizable:

  • More deletion methods.
  • Available for other operating systems, such as Mac, Linux.
  • Mobile version for iOS or Android.


The bottom line is that this very light program is the perfect example how small software can make a big difference. If you have an executable or another file that you can’t delete, just try it, we dare you. All you have to do is to execute it as an administrator and watch the magic happen.

Note: This test was performed on a Lenovo B50-70 with 64-bit Windows 10
