Try booting from a Win98 floppy and delete it in DOS........

What kind of message are you getting when you try to delete this folder? Are you getting the message that it's in use by a program? You can press CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if any files in that folder is running by looking in "Processes". If a file from that directory is running, try ending the process by selecting the file and clicking in the "End Task" button...
If it comes to the worst and if you are running Windows 2000 on FAT32, not NTFS, you can boot using a Windows 98 Boot disk and typing the following at the DOS Prompt:
thanks to all you Guys who give time for this post.
I will try all your advices and hope to get rid of this folder.
