this happens to me sometimes when installing something. All you gotta do is re-start the computer and then they can be deleted

Try taking ownership of the folders:

Windows 7 Take Ownership & Grant Permissions to Access Files & Folder

Then delete them. Might be a good idea to see what's in there first, though.
