Do you have view hidden files checked i folder options?

* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.

Once you do that see if there is any files in the folder. You can try deleting the files but i think you will get a "cannot be deleted, file is in use" error meassage. If this is happening start the computer in safe mode and try deleting them there.

If that still does not work there is a program called "move on boot" that you can use that will delete the files and folder before windows starts up.
