How to remove empty folders

I have some folders which are empty but for some reason cannot be moved, renamed or deleted. Could someone advise me if there is a programme or way of removing these please?

If you are really sure they are ok to delete and you cannot delete them the normal way have a look at this site

click here have used it and it works well BUT you must be sure it's ok to delete the folder in question first.

It is frequently worth Rebooting (Turning of) the Computer.

Many Files become protected in the course of an individual session, but become available once the PC has been turned off.

First you need to ensure they are actually empty and do not contain hidden files.

If empty then a program called unlocker will help to delete them.
