How do I get rid of this folder?

I had a bluetooth connection to a phone and it created a folder. I would like to remove the folder but as soon as I select it I get ''windows has stopped responding''.

Here's a print screen of the folder:

It's likely just a shortcut to the device. Try this:

Start> In search box type devices and printers> Enter

See if it shows up on the list. If so, right click the device and choose Remove device. The folder should now also be gone from Computer.

Try and kill it with File-assassin in the More Tools Tab in Malwarebytes. I presume that you have MalwareBytes Free installed like most of us.
