can someone shed some light on this peculiar situation? i'm trying to delete a folder, but windows has decided to be obstinate and is preventing me from doing so

Is it still in use? Make sure everything that has to do with foobar is closed/stopped.

foobar isn't running.

i tried unpacking the foobar installer to this folder. now it's empty but for one file - a zero-byte empty file with a blank name and no extension.

i tried killbox with no luck...

~edit~

just tried mst IsUsedBy. the file is not in use by any processes

unlocker doesn't help either. and yes i've rebooted. this folder has persisted for about a week

maybe i'll just pretend it's not there until the next time i format this partition...

Why don't you reinstall foobar and uninstall it with something like Revo Uninstaller on the advanced tab, see if it takes it away.

Hi garbanzo,

Have you tried Take Ownership Shortcut on this folder?

Airbot - Revo won't do anything unfortunately. like i said, i just unpacked the foobar installer to this folder (using Universal Extractor). then i deleted everything, and only that empty file is left. i do have foobar elsewhere on my system, but it's the 'portable' install, so there is no uninstaller.

Dwarf - just tried it, no luck.

Encountered this issue several times. If after a few reboots wont solve to delete it, I rename the folder on a fresh reboot then delete
