Windows 7: Cant Delete Folder After MSE Found Threat

Cant Delete Folder After MSE Found Threat

MSE found a threat on my data drive, I chose to have it removed and it froze permanently. I tried to manually delete that folder but it just says "discovering items" and then nothing happens. No error messages...

I have tried going into safe mode to remove the folder without luck. I have even used a utility called DP Wiper to remove it and didn't work.

I've googled this and haven't found anything on it. Most people have access / permissions problems with deleting a file / folder but this one doesn't have to do with that. Any help much appreciated!
