Can't delete a folder from the desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an empty folder that I cannot delete or move.  I get a message that it is being used by another program or person.  Nothing else is running except the background programs.  How can i delete this folder.

  • it means some process/application is using that folder in the background. you can try entering into safe mode and deleting it. if it still doesn't delete, follow Luigi's post.
