Here I am again...:)   I have a folder that I created for resized images. I now do not need (Want) this folder. I can delete it, but it returns. I have tried all I can find to get myself rid of this folder...Safe-Mode, unlocker, moving to another location, renaming, going to target, by-passing recycle bin,,,and can`t remember what else to no avail....Oh,,, I have scanned with Avira, MalwareBytes, Bleeping-computer, SpyBot, and superAntiSpyware.....No Nasty`s found yet. Maybe not to wory about, But sure would like it gone.....Thanks for any and all advice....jim

I have a folder that I created for resized images.

Let's start with what program you use to resize these images, what's the name?  Also, how did you create the folder?

Shore pard...A big nice fresh HOT cup of Folders will be there promptly....The folder in Q was created by yours-truly. Just with daughter`s name. I used Iceream Image Resizer to reduce some pics and saved them in that folder. I since have deleted all contents successively except the silly folder. Did uninstall/reinstall Icecream app several times....Thanks....jim...PS,,,I can delete it,,,but it returns...

The partition you created this folder may have damage file system or bad sector. Open Command Prompt as a administrator and type: Chkdsk  C:  /r command and press Enter key. Replace the C: drive letter with drive letter of the partition where the folder located.

By folder-lock, I mean a program claims ownership of a certain folder and will keep ownership of said folder.  It's rare that it happens.  I'm awake now, did you indicate that you can delete X folder, then upon restart, the deleted folder is back?  If yes, then Iceream is remaking that folder every time it discovers folder is missing.

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, I can delete it, move and delete, rename it and delete . It returns sometimes soon and sometimes after a while. I have since uninstalled Ice-cream image resizer and folder still returns.  Where could it be hiding...?    Thanks...Jim

At this point, I dunno.  I hope Agouti has some ideas!  I'm out of ideas.

Try this

 

Create a new folder on your desktop, give it any name you want, then Cut and Paste the  folder that wont delete  into the new folder you created, then delete both.

 

You could try running Chkdisk,instructions here if you need

 

https://windowsinstructed.com/run-chkdsk-windows/

 

Then try deleting it.

 

Worth a look

Also,you could try Lockhunter

 

http://lockhunter.com/

 

If it still refuses ti bidge,it might be time for a malware check.
