I couldn't delete the Plugtmp folder from C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp

The folder was created all of a sudden coz i used to delete all the temp files usually after i browse and today i noticed this folder and when i tried to delete it i got the message that The folder is not empty and could not be deleted. I opened the folder to find a file named "s". The size is 0 bytes for this folder. What exactly is this Plugtmp and why did it come all of a sudden in temp folder. What is its function? I want to delete it .... How could i do that?

I believe that the Plugtmp folders are temp folders created when you view streaming video and audio. Try deleting it in safe mode.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
