Undeletable old image Files

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.setup_deployment (More info?)

I get an error when I try to delete old Ris images of the server. The error states that it can not find the correct path to the file being deleted. I can search for the file and it is found, then I try to delete it and it locks up the machine. I wonder if it is because the file name is to long but I can not rename it either. Here is the file name S:\RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\undeletable 3\i386\Mirror1\UserData\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-21-299502267-706699826-725345543-500
a18ca4003deb042bbee7a40f15e1970b_3dcf1f8d-b3ba-4cf7-a94d-7fed40196a53. Any suggestions?

    Rename the folder that is causing the problem.

    example:
    Rename the
    "S-1-5-21-299502267-706699826-725345543-500a18ca4003deb042bbee7a40f15e1970b_
    3dcf1f8d-b3ba-4cf7-a94d-7fed40196a53"
    folder to "x" or something small. Then delete.
