Remove IColor folder

I installed IcolorFolder ( application to change color and appearence of folders). I was able to unistalled but after that , I was left with a folder named icolorfolderand an application inside, named CMext or CMenu extender, made by Revenger.inc filre version 1.2.1.2..

This is a is a shell pack that attempts to assimilate the look and feel of Windows Vista.
The action can't be completed because the file in question is being used by Windows Explorer.

Also it can't be removed , not even in Safe Mode.

Any ideas in how to remove this folders and the contents...

By the way Icolor Folder does not work with Windows7,,,DUhhhh

oops! download free Malwarebytes.org install this program and Click on More tools. You will find a program called as File Assassin. It deletes locked files. Give click on browse and give the path to that file which you want to delete.
