Admistrator privilege problems

I have two aacounts - one administrator one not. I am logged in as "Randy Administrator". Windows will not allow me to delete a directory in the "C:\Users\Public" area. Says I need "Administrator permission" WTF I am administrator.

Thanks fior really confusing things MS.

Some clarity would be nice thanks in advance

Admistrator privilege problems

you could always try as a first step to check your security permissions in the "C:\Users\Public" area folders, make sure administator permissions are folder properties and then the security tab. If this is not possible try taking ownership of the folder:
