Update:

All folders deleted without any issues (yes, I had to OK the UAC prompt, but that was it).

They are in the Recycle Bin for now. But have installed this week's updates and rebooted several times since then, without incident. Will dump them from RB soon, to be fully rid of them.

Will mark as SOLVED.

Thanks, all

Glad to hear it, no need to keep them in the RB... toss them out....

cannot delete folder (even safe mode)
Strange issue. In my downloads folder, I had one folder of icons from an unziped zip file (clean of antivirus or spyware). Strange enough, I now cannot delete the actual folder and sub-folders! I even replicated this in safe mode too. I am on an admin account as well and have full permissions "all"...
