Default Problem with accessing a folder on NTFS partition

There are some folders have appeared on my NTFS partition. I cannot neither enter in it nor delete it. The folderís size = 0 bytes. But Iíve discovered the folder with Runtime's DiskExplorer for NTFS. The folder ISNíT EMPTY.

At the very least, you should be able to delete them in safe mode. Generally, if you can't delete a file or folder it means that something's using it - whether or not that something has hung is another issue. Try rebooting your PC and deleting again, or if that fails, boot into safe mode.

If you've got an up-to-date version of a Linux distro (w/the newest kernel), you should be able to delete it from there - IIRC, kernel 2.6 has better support for NTFS.

I'm running Windows XP+SP1.
The folder is "\Install\Lingvo\" i.e. it isn't a system protected.
I've tried to delete the folder into safe mode. Got the error message like
"Can't delete folder Lingvo. No access
Disc maybe full or write-protected or locked
by another application"

Do a properties on the folder and check permirsions then ownership. Make sure the current account has ownership and all rights then try to delete them.
