Skillset: reverse engineering, software cracking.
Kernel32.dll contains routines FileLock and FileLockEx
As far as I know, they are responsible for file locks in Windows
Your job is to modify these routines so that when they are called they do not create any locks
If anything else creates the locks I don't know: your job is to disable windows file locking
The result being that no file can be locked by any process
Do this for Windows XP and Windows 7. Or give price for only one if you prefer.

I am currently using XP, so I would try that first. Some of the tests I would do, after disabling all File Shadow Copy services:
- MS Office having a file open, and trying to open it with another app.
- Carbonite backup service accessing files and not locking them, while I use them with other applications.
- Unlocker not showing any file locks, even with file in use (unless you find a way in which locks are always ignored)
