That sounds like you're doing it right. Now try deleting the folder.

I doubt renaming it will work, but feel free to play around.

Try deleting the file from safe mode.

If that does not work, see this post: Folder won't Delete - ARGH

Actually, try the post before booting up in safe mode. If it works, you don't have to reboot.
