Removing System Volume Information virus with $recycle bin


With some of steps with this link, i got to delete the folder RECYCLER.

However, the System Volume Information folder dont allow the access to delete it (MSDOS or Explorer). I know that have to manage folder options, to show hidden files, etc... run CMD as Administrador and the folder is still there denying the command.

Any hint to help me?
