How to delete a folder in the Documents and Settings folder that isn't under your username?
I have recently purchased a PC with Windows XP Prefessional.
There is a folder that belonged to an old user account in the C:\Documents and Settings\ folder that I cannot delete. I was able to enter the folder and delete the users favorites and desktop, but cannot delete the entire folder.
The user account has been removed already. But, the left over crap is still on the PC.
I have tried logging in as the administrator in safemode and still am unable to delete the folder. I am the only user on the machine and there are no other account currently on the machine.
