Think that is the SID (Security Identifier) number.

That sir is the group policy editor, you can also reach it from the run line at gpedit.msc

It is one of the great things starting with W2K being able to set policies on your network

Try taking ownership of them, then delete.

how do I take ownership even logged on as admin I can't delete the folders. I can't even view the folders. And the funny thing is that I made the folders on the same account.

In that case you are the owner of those folders (are they shared across a network where someone may have the folder open?)

In any case, boot to Safe Mode (no networking) and delete them there.

I'm still stuck, not only can I not delete teh folder I can't even access what's in it.

Safe-mode did nothing still couldn't access it.
CMD as shown above said access is denied.

CAn I boot to command prompt and then delete?

Here's what to do.

At a command prompt, type in the following command:
AT 13:12 /interactive cmd

Replace 13:12 with whatever time you like. Note that the time must be in 24-hour format and the /interactive switch must come before the command you wish to run. The time needs to be some time in the future. If you make it in the past, it will run at that time tomorrow.

Once the time you set rolls around, a command prompt will come up. Try going into the folder from there.

Technical info:
What you are doing is running a command prompt as the LocalService account. If you get access denied here, then we'll need to try changing permissions from the command prompt.

You could also try letting the scripting engine have a crack at it.

Copy and paste the following into a notepad document and save as delete.vbs
code:
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objFSO.DeleteFolder("C:\Documents and Settings\Matthew\Desktop\New Folder\Desktoptemp")

after saving, double click on the file to run it (you may get a warning from your anti-virus, but let the script run once and it should take care of the folder.

I don't think that will work too well. The script only has the permissions of the user who runs it. If he runs it using the AT command, I think it would take care of it.

Run the AT command and then wait for it to appear. Close everything and then work from within the command prompt that appears.

Try the attached (you can open with notepad to check that it isn't malacious).

If you want a little history the one folder "kailyn's english" was created by me (matthew-admin rights) and then I downloaded english *.doc word files from the web. they opened the first time then the next time I tried it said something about users and access denied. Then the whole folder went anal on me and I couldn't open it or delete it.

folder two was created by a program when I went to unpack it to a temp folder on the desktop but missed a "\" in the bar and cancelled half way through the unpacking. from that point on it was like it is now

Question: Have you tried running a disk scan yet? It's possible the allocation table for those folders got messed up somehow... That could account for all of the lockups, even from the command prompt.
