I created a folder on the desktop (windows XP Pro) but didn't use it. I can delete it but it comes back later. I used a program called "Unlock" - this also deleted it but it still keeps coming back. I can't find the folder in the registry.
Creating a new folder on your desktop but don't name it. Drag the other folder into it and then delete the new folder.
Click Start>Run then type the command chkdsk. It will run the checkdisk utility and will fix the folder. Once the checkdisk utility is done, delete the folder.
Also saw this on a forum:-
Create a new folder, don't rename it. Drag it into the folder that won't delete. This should create a copy of the folder that wouldn't delete and should place it on the desktop.Delete the problematic folder first, then create another new folder and drag it into the copied folder. Delete the new copied folder.
