If you try to delete it and it won't delete and gives and error message such as "it is being used by another person or program" then I would recommend downloading a program called unlocker:
-->http://ccollomb.free...ocker/#download
after you install it you can right click on the folder and click unlocker. It will tell you what programs are using it and you can terminate them and then delete the folder. If it says no programs are using it just pick delete from the combo box and the folder will delete.

What Antivirus are you currently using?

Most Antivirus scanners have the ability to exclude a directory or file from scanning. If you cannot delete the folder try to bypass it instead by un-selecting its folder from the Scanning Directory. That should at least make your Antivirus scan your whole system! :)
