You should first to stop the session that has locked the table.

To enconter the session

select s.sid, s.serial#, p.spid
from v$session s, v$process p
where s.paddr = p.addr and s.sid in (select SESSION_ID from V$LOCKED_OBJECT)

Now drop the session

It is possible to force the kill by adding the IMMEDIATE keyword:
SQL> ALTER SYSTEM KILL SESSION 'sid,serial#' IMMEDIATE;
This should prevent you ever needing to use the orakill.exe in Windows, or the kill command in UNIX/Linux.
