Unable to delete folder in xp

elmoelmo Registered User regular
Alright, so i have a folder that i cant delete in windows xp, all i get are error messages saying it cant find it,

'Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk'

and from cmd

Could not find said directory

Tried running CCleaner, defragging in safe mode, deleting in safe mode and still no luck. While its not taking up any space, its annoying as hell.

Options i havent tried yet is booting a linux live cd and attempting to delete it that way, not quite sure how the NTFS support is in linux these days.

Any tools i should try before going with the live cd option?

Help me PA, your my only hope!
