Files may be in use until reboot.

yes, but I am going to try going into safe mode and see if i can delete from there. On the usb drive, I have even taken it to another system and you can't delete.

I have one on folder like that my external Harddrive. It looks like it was created by a Session of Acronis Try & Decide.

I think it is something to do with Acronis but I am not using try and decide.

I only used it once and it crashed on me. Bu who's to say that folders like that aren't left behind by other Acronis components. If you can pack that folder into a ZIP or RAR and upload it to Mediafire or so, I would be willing to take a closer look. At least the two BMPs should tell you where its from.

blackhawk,
First try to delete in safe mode.

Be sure to go to an elevated command prompt and to use the good old dos commands to navigate to the folder and then use the DEL command.

If you can't delete, the folder use the attrib -r -s -h foldername /S command and then try to delete. If that doesn't work use DIR and then use attrib -r -s -h *.*. Now try to delete.

Examples:
D:
cd \53ab78a8548aac7479d7a4ee
attrib -r -s -h 53ab78a8548aac7479d7a4ee /S
del *.* /s

You just be sure you are in the correct location before you use that del command.

If all of this doesn't work, then:
Make yourself a System Repair Disc.
Boot (you must actually boot) from the Disc.
At an elevated command prompt, now try to delete the files.

Here's some info you will need:
