    Go to the folder and press CTRL+F5.

    Or try logging out and back in.

    You've probably already deleted the folder and you have to close and reopen the window to see the change.

    and your voice made me lol a little :P

    Read what he posted. He did that. He logged out and back in, which essentially is restarting explorer.exe.
    My suggestion would be a file shredder. They can get rid of files that are supposedly not there.

    What about unlocker? I saw it on other website on forum. Too late. Jeff got first about unlocker before I do. So which one is the best? File Shedder or Unlocker?

    Unlocker since it'll detach a process's handle without killing the process.

    You've probably already tried this, but try restarting the computer.

    It should work I had this problem before and that worked for me. The other thing you could try is show all hidden files and folders, you should see a hidden recycle bin icon and it may appear to have something it, if so, try emptying it and then try deleting the folder again.

    Unlocker and File Shredder won't work. Any idea? I did restart thousand of time for update. Nothing freaking happen. I feel like those folder lock from camtasia. I need go look for setting in camtasia.

    If it's not running, it can't lock the folder.

    Does it show up in the command prompt?

    How I suppose to use command prompt? I already tried copy and paste. They said error folder path. So command prompt is not helping.
