Cannot rename a folder

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
When I try to rename a certain folder, it is giving me "Access is Denied".  I am logged in as Administrator and looking at the security tab, Administrators have all rights except "Special Permissions".  I'm wondering if that could be the problem?  Under advanced, Administrators have all rights to "This folder, subfolders and files".  I don't understand why I cannot rename this folder?  It was once a shared folder, but I turned off.  Any ideas?
