* logon to windows as administrator.
* browse to folder and right click on it
* select properties
* select security
* select advanced
* click the owner tab
* tick the check box to replace the owner on folder and subfolders and select administrator account you are logged on as
* apply

you should be able to delete it now

EDIT: ok I see that the security tab is not present.....to enable it open my computer.....select "tools"...."folder options"....."view"..... scroll to the bottom and uncheck "use simple file sharing"
