I'm not sure what I'm meant to do about this message -

I don't have any applications open, I've restarted the computer and I have cleaned the temp files...


But If I try to delete this folder it doesn't allow me to, any thoughts ?
cheers!

Hi,

Can you tell us the name of the folder you want to remove and where it is located?

Hi, [bleep] I'm away from that computer at the moment, I seem to remember it being in a folder on the desktop though... Is that far too vague?

Hi,

Its OK I only want to be sure that you aren't trying to remove some special folder belonging to the OS :)

Try to remove the folder using Unlocker Portable
Extract the zip and run Unlocker.exe from the folder that match your Windows Architecture (x86 or x64), accept the security warning and browse to select the folder you want to remove. It should tell you the program that is locking the folder and the option to force the deletion.
