"Item Not Found" when trying to delete a folder

I have a folder called public_html on my desk top which one of my clients websites was in, I deleted everything from inside it and then one folder was left, when I try and delete it I get a message "Could not find this item" I then try and delete the public_html folder and I get the same message.

I have tried pressing F5 to refresh my desktop but it is still there. I have tried restarting my computer and it is still there.

I don't know what else I could do, has anyone else experienced a problem like this and if they have resolved it could they explain how. It is quite annoying because I can't move or delete the folder.

"Item not found" bug when moving or renaming files/folders
Hello, I just made an account here because this bug is seriously bugging me. It shows up whenever I move or create any new files/folders. I have googled the registry fix and that doesn't seem to be working. Is there any other known fix? P.S. There is nothing wrong with Waterfox.
