    I'm running Windows 7 64Bit OS. I deleted a folder that came up named
    "File folder". I got it deleted so it world go to the recycle bin, but
    when i try to delete it or empty recycle bin it will not let me. It will
    not delete anything i had to go into the recycle bin and click the other
    files and got them delete, but still cant get that folder out. It will
    not let restore it to the location that it can from. Any ideal on how to
    remove it without reinstalling my computer?

    Thank you for your time.

    Loran,

    Try taking ownership of the folder

    and then delete it for good.
