  1. Download Unlocker to delete the folder... Second option would be Fileassassin, and if that doesn't do it... install the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware application to delete a possible infection of your system.

  2. U have something running in the background...
    Restart and go to safe mode (F8) try deleting it there.
    If not, try by command prompt.
