To test out another problem I was facing, I created a new user account. Now I have no use for that account, so I deleted it, but just to be on the safe side I chose to keep all files from the account. So, Windows created a folder on my desktop with the old account's name, and in it were the folders one expects to find: Music, Pictures, Videos, etc. Turns out, these folders were empty, so time to go in the trash. However, Windows will not let me delete these folders. I am continually met with a UAC prompt telling me, "You'll need to provide administrator privileges to delete this folder." I am the admin for this machine, so I click Continue. I am then informed that I "require permission from [my user name] to make changes to this folder." I have tried the TakeOwnership reg edit, no success. I have tried using icacls to give myself delete permission, no luck. I enabled the Administrator account via net user, but even the Admin can't delete these folders! I can't even open them. I'm at a total loss here. Any ideas?
