I came upon a page where 15 files and folders
cannot be removed.  These are :files no longer
exist and/or have been removed to another place.

Emco's Move [and delete] On Boot may be useful here.  Make sure it's not a Windows Prime directory, you should be able to delete that pesky folder.

Agouti and Roland

Thanks for your quick reply. I managed to clear all those files, all pertaining to Win patrol  which I downloaded

but changed my mind/. I managed to clear them one by one. Properties>file location>deleted.

Will mark as solved.

<groan>  :rolleyes:  How were we to know they were WinPatrol files?  Did you use the WinPatrol removal tool?  It's on WinPatrol's download page.  Just scroll about 3/4 way down and you'll see it.
