    Before you start deleting folders, you should doublecheck to make sure there aren't any hidden files or subfolders within the ones you want to delete. To do this, go to:

    My Computer,


    Folder Options,


    Files and Folders section

    Tick beside Show Hidden Files and Folders



    Then check those folders to make sure nothing is hidden. Deleting some folders with hidden files could affect your computer if you happen to delete a critical operrating system file. If the folder is empty, you can right click and delete it.

    Afterwards you should retrace the above steps to hide files and folders. This is basically a built in safety precaution.

    Actually sometime, while deleting files, we accidently press enter simultaneosly with the delete button. So what happens in this scenario, files gets executed and then gets deleted. Now the file that just executed return to its main program to end, from where it was initiated, but its main program is already deleted, so it can't terminate itself and keep running the nodes of the application.

    Now if you try to delete the folder, it will show an error message of file(s) is use from empty folder.

    So the solution for this problem is to give a full restart to your computer and try to delete the same folder. If it still dont works try to reboot your computer in a safe mode.

    Good Luck with your empty folder...

    Sometimes, only the program that created them can delete them properly. That's the case with the folders created by My Logitech Pictures program whenever I download pictures from my camera to my computer. In those cases, about once a week, I open the program and do the right click, Delete and Y(confirm) thing one at a time to send them to the recycle bin.
