    in your heart...coz secretly you love me !!!!
    try to go in the safe mode
    if im not wrong when the pc boot just type f5 and then select safe mode (the "f5" depend on your pc)
    its very powerful but don overdo it is so powerful that you can delete even the system folder

    oh ........safe mode...... how many times have you saved me ?! [​IMG]

    Behind you
    restart, then imediately delete before any program can use it, or delete everything inside then the folder

    I usually just open task manager and terminate all the suspicious processes till I'm able to delete the folder
    If that doesn't work then I do as the others have said, open up Windows in safe mode and delete it
