I want to block the administrator logonfrom being able to delete files and/or the folder that contains them.  I need to call scripts using the administrator logon, but want to block it from being able to delete any files in the folder.

So in the folder properties edit the admin and only allow read and traverse file, disable write and modify. No need to explicitly set deny rights.

If only it were that easy.  Is your solution referring to properties found in advanced tab, or in the securities tab only.  The issue I am having is that when I change one of the permissions a new entry admin entry gets created in the advanced tab.  I can remove the new entry, but still, nothing takes affect.

Then the admin is probably the owner for that folder, change the owner first in that case.

The simple answer is that you can't - Even if you remove the permission, being an administrator, the administrator could just give themselves the permission back again.
