Cannot unhide a hidden folder

About a week ago I was fooling around with the attrib command in the cmd prompt.

I went in and did something like attrib +s +h /s /d
in order to make the folder and all the subfolders and files hidden.

Recently, I went to unhide everything using something along the lines
attrib -s -h /s /d

everything becomes unhidden, except for one folder and all of its contents.

I get the error:

access denied - the folder

When I try changing the ownership of the previous folder that contains the hidden folder that won't unhide, I get the error:

"an error occurred while applying security information to"

I'd really like to either access this folder, or delete it. I tried in safe mode, and I still have no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.
