OPatch failed with error code = 74 (Windows)

Recently I had to patch one 10g on Win x64. As I', pretty new to Windows and Oracle environments, I thought that shutting down all Oracle based services should be enough step for patching but I was wrong.
When I tried to apply patch I got:
C:\oracle\install\p8609347_10204_MSWIN-x86-64\8609347>opatch apply

The solution

Killing Windows processes that holds some DLLs are not so easy when you have to kill something else then Explorer or there were several blocked DLLS (at it was in mine case).

So I found out nice freeware utility Unlocker which is made for 32 as well as 64 bit Windows versions. It's advantage over Who's Locking?, which I was using until now, is that Unlocker can release all locks on whole directory in one step.

Cheers!
