Hello! My name is Ronnie, and I have tried pretty much every single way on how to delete a folder that simply won't go away.
Some background...on my desktop, I have a folder called "Paul Ryan Hypocrisy on Specifics" (I do YouTube videos, and that happened to be one of my videos), and there is nothing in it. I, however, am unable to rid of the folder. Not only does this tamper with my OCD, but I don't want Paul Ryan to haunt me post-election. :P
I tried almost everything. I tried the fancy little code thingies through the Command Prompt (running it as the administrator). I tried downloading numerous programs, such as Unlocker, Lock Hunter, and Delete Long Paths. I tried hiding it, renaming it, adding a file to it and then trying to delete it. I tried deleting the folder on Safe Mode. I tried restarting my computer. I tried refreshing my desktop. Nothing seems to be working!!
I did happen to run across an interesting thing, though, when using "Delete Long Paths." It showed a file called "destop.ini" in the folder. I was unable to delete it, though, because it required me to purchase the full program, which I was not going to do. I researched it, and I understand it's purpose, but I have no way of deleting it, considering how it is hidden in all other circumstances. Furthermore, I am not even sure if that is what is causing the issue.
So, if anyone could offer their assistance, that would be grand!
