Windows 7: Locked tempfiles from driverinstall - how to delete

Locked tempfiles from driverinstall - how to delete

I have a pretty big temp folder with some older Nvidia installer package in which I would like to have deleted.
The path is:
C:\Windows\system32\driverstore\temp\{5be41a21-F710-0e32-BACB-1443dfdbf46c}\

When I try to remove one or more files in this folder, I get told from Windows that I need permission from "SYSTEM". I'm logged in as administrator.

Anybody know how I delete these temp files? They tease me every time I want to update the driver for my graphics card.
