Try using a utility to find / delete it. (perhaps via an admin CMD?)

Every time i've had this message it's because the file has already been deleted. I normally just F5/Refresh the screen & it vanishes.

"Item Not Found" when Moving or Renaming
Every time I move or rename a folder, an "Item Not Found" dialog opens. It says "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in C:\...". When I click "Try Again", it moves/renames just fine. Does anyone know why it's happening and how I can make it stop? It's incredibly annoying.
