I tried to delete an empty folder. But I got an error message that said , "cannot find the specified files". I tried deleting it from the command prompt. The same error message appeared. Can someone help?

Thanks

Did it give you an error message? Have you tried to delete on reboot?

Also, make sure you are viewing all hidden and system files:
Go to Start > My Computer
Go to Tools > Folder Options
Click on the View tab
Untick the following:
  • Hide extensions for known file types
  • Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
You will get a message warning you about showing protected operating system files, click Yes
Make sure this option is selected:
  • Show hidden files and folders
Click Apply and then click OK

Try deleting it in Safe mode the folder may be running normal boot.
