Unable to Delete Folder From Desktop (Administrative Problem)

Hello
Last night I decided to install a game, so I made a folder on my desktop.
I finished installing it last night.
Today I decided I dont need it any more so, I went to delete it.
The file says that I need administrative privillages. Then says u require permission from Owner-Hp\Owner to make changes to folder. I am the admin though, just got my computer last night, it was pre-owned. Just displayed in the window of future shop, but still pre owned.
I changed the account name from owner to corey..... Whats the deal?

I appreciate the help

Hello Corey, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you give a step by step on how you changed the account name from "Owner" to "Corey"?

If you didn't do this properly, then this is most likely the cause of this issue.
