Try starting in safe mode and deleting the file

before you do that, determine whether the content is hidden from you. Untick 'hide files and folders' and check again.

you could try unhiding system files. Perhaps there IS something in it, but you just can't see it?

What is the folder?

Legolas has the answer this error can be resolved by deleting in safe mode...
