i know this might sound dumb but have you tried to take ownership of the file?

Just because you are logged on as an admin, doesn't mean you have rights...UAC has its own mind?? If the ownership attempt doesn't work, You may have to use an elevated CMD and delete with DOS commands.

I got the problem fixed... I found that the user that created the folder only hade linited premissions... Once i got ownership of the folder it was easy from there.
