windows 7

right click desktop, new, folder. That is the folders I can not delete

I made folders to store pictures, junk etc. These folders can not be deleted by windows even in safe mode.

I can make another folder and stick it in the folder I am trying to delete. example one folder is titled junk, I can make a folder and stick it inside folder titled junk and delete the folder, but soon as I do a new folder titled junk is back on my desktop. file names can not be changed .


To sum this up the folders can't be deleted and if I find a way to delete one it pops back up once it is deleted.

Are you logged in with a non-administrative account?

Go to START - RUN and type: desktop
Press ENTER
Try to delete the folder from within Windows Explorer. What happens?

Might try a little app called Unlocker

There is a portable (no installer) version as well.
