Windows 7: Cannot delete folder "You require permission from Main/Arceus

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Cannot delete folder "You require permission from Main/Arceus

I am unable to delete this one folder no matter what I do! It always tells me that I need permission from Main/Arceus to perform this action. I am logged in as Main/Arceus and I am the administrator but I still cannot delete this folder! First it tells me that I need to provide administrator permission to perform the action, but after I allow the UAC, that other error message appears.

I tried using the "take ownership" registry hack but the same error still occurs.

Lock Hunter and Unlocker also failed

I uninstalled AVG and it left a few png and html files behind that I cannot get rid of!
