Canīt Delete Folder. You Need Permission.....

Hello
As the topic says I cant delete a folder. It says i need permission, but i have taken ownership of the folder and gave me full control over it but the same thing happens.
The folder i am trying to delete is a temp folder with the name "vsTemp19" itīs around 5,5 gb big and i have no idea how it got there.
So is there anything i can do like a software that can delete it or something?

Edit: Did a virus scan with nod32 v4 and it found nothing.

Try turning off UAC reboot and you should be able to delete it then.

Are you sure no program is using that folder?

You can try Unlocker..

After you have taken ownership, you still need to set the proper permissions, and apply it to all objects in the folder and below.

Try deleting it from cmd, the files are probably locked, if you still get a permision error message, my bet is that you didn't do the needed properly .

edit: I just read a few posts up, files are in use, reboot and try again, if still locked, check what's going on, something iffy no doubt.
