You could try taking ownership of the entire folder.  You do not have full access even if you are an administrator.

Right click E drive
Open security tab
Click on authenticated users, or your account name, and click on edit
Check full control under allow.

Or try enabling the Administrator account and use that account to delete the folder.

It's possible you have a virus

Open a command promt cmd press Enter
go to E:\  (try checking on C:\ too)
Type: attrib autorun.inf -s -h Enter
Type: del autorun.inf ENTER
Type: Exit

Run a virus scan.
