Wow, you are making us work this morning. Wish you well
Oddly enough, the first step in your link (Reboot and try deletion again) worked!

Thanks to all of you!
If you ever have problems with that again, both with files and folders, there is a program called UNLOCKER that works great.

I have that in my favs, but could not find it. When I saw this thread, I could not remember the name and it was misfiled.

FYI about Unlocker,

It works better than any similar tool I have found. The only drawback is that
MSE thinks it is infected. The problem which MSE finds is a link to ebay which
can be unchecked during the program install.

I have made an exception in MSE for this program. I have used Unlocker for years
and have never had any problems. I highly recommend it.

Please let me know if their is any problem.

I'll do my best.

I'm a member of quite a few forums and an Administrator of one - so I don't get as much time for each of them as I would like. But, I'll do my best to remain active here on SevenForums.

Thanks again for all of the help everyone!

Trust me when I say this, everyone has something to contribute here. Sometimes even if it is only a fresh set of eyes, that see something the rest don't.
