Default I think its a virus

There is this folder on my hdd named "82a01e8c8bf167d6e29c26" I cant delete it with my user account that has full admin rights. I try to delete it and it says this...

You'll need to provide administrator permissions to delete this folder

i can choose from

"continue" "skip" or "cancel"

I choose continue

Then it says this

You need permission to perform this action

"you require permission from J\KaneT to make changes tothis folder.

i can select "try again" or "cancel"

I am useing a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate and i have admin rights so i dont know why i cant delete it!!!

I have scaned it with avg 9 and it detects nothing! Can some one please help me out so i can get rid of this strange folder/files

Cheers

Brutus, read the OP. He said he's using Windows 7 Ultimate.

Where abouts on your hardrive is it? Have you tried running a second scan on it with a different program? Give Anti-Malware bytes a go.

Do you have hidden folders and show system files/folders enabled?

I asked this before that.I don't have an answer.
Don't view hidden or sysyem files.Use Folder options to set.

If you can move the folder then it's most likely not a system folder that is critical for Windows operation. Boot into Safe Mode, login as the administrator and delete there.
