Can't delete old Windows folder!

Hi all, first time here. My question is, when I upgraded from Windows Vista to 7 (vast improvement I must say) I chose the clean install path to cut down on the bloat that transfers in upgrades. The system stored all my files from when I was using Vista in the Windows.old folder on the desktop. Well I went through there, moved all my files and folders where they needed to go, got rid of the rest and tried to delete the Windows.old folder. Now I'm being told "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in... Verify the item's location and try again." What do I do to get rid of it? It's not taking much space on the drive, but it does get in the way. Any help is appreciated.
