Hi,

I did a test with a folder named like yours and I can rename it without any problem so it must be something different...
Try to remove the folder with Unlocker

!! Important !!: During install choose Advanced and unckeck all the boxes related to Delta Toolbar it's not needed for the program to work.

After install right click the folder and you will see a new option called Unlocker click that and then on the combo choose delete and press OK.

This command really creates a no name folder. What you have to do is, first create new folder and then rename that folder and press Alt+255 and press enter, a folder without a name will be created.
And well, my problem of deleting that folder is fixed now, I deleted that using command prompt. :)
