I deleted a user account on my computer today. I decided to save the files
and it put it on my desktop as a folder. I went through the folder and got
everything I wanted. Now I can't delete the folder. It keeps telling me
there is a sharing violation or something... because another user may be
using it... How do I delete this folder?

Thanks for the help... unfortunately it didn't work. However I did manage
to solve the problem.

I removed the sharing properties of the folder... it took a lot of button
clicking on "Advanced" buttons... but I found something that worked. Thanks
again though!
