Re: your post post above and a previous post "I'm going to need something with military force to delete these folders." - the cavalry might be coming.
I "fix" many Windows problems by using Linux, specificly a live Linux disk. You've become frustrated and wasted a lot of time so spend another 20 minutes and burn a CD.
I suggest burning a copy of Puppy Linux or Knoppix Linux (I like Puppy). Boot to the Puppy CD, mount your "C:\" drive (it's easy and obvious) then navigate to the offending directory - delete it. Exit Puppy Linux, remove the CD and boot into Windows.
My best guess is the folder will be gone. If it isn't gone then something else is creating it as part of a process, such as an app that somehow "created" that folder for temp files, etc. - would have to find the offending app.
