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?
