Default Re: Can't delete file WTF!!!!

It sounds to me like the file system could be potentially damaged if it's struggling with this - try running chkdsk and then see if the situation changes.

Common file system error. Open command prompt and type:

chkdsk /r/f

It will reboot, do a chkdsk and folder should be gone.
