I can't delete a folder from my C drive

I have Domain admin rights. I have a folder on my desktop called 22Desktop. It has a bunch of folders in it called Desktop that came all by themselves.  When I try ti delete this folder it won't let me. I have attached a picture.  Anyone got any ideas on how I can get rid of this folder once and for all?

Launch process explorer or task manager and end process related to open office. After you had stopped all the process related to open office then try to delete the folder.
