What is the name of the folder, and what error are you getting when trying to delete it?

You may want to try doing it via command prompt which sometimes seems to work a little better then using win explorer.

The folder name is empty.

While deleting message is showing as "can not delete empty: the directory is not empty"

Can you go intothe folder to see files, You may have to enable "show Hidden files" then delete the individual files, then delete the folder.
