On my last PC, for some reason, I tried to delete an internet explorer folder, but it didn't work so I got mad and threw it in another folder. Migrated to a new PC, that stubborn folder came with. Got the majority of contents out of it, but the en-US folder is giving me trouble.
I am owner of the parent folder, and all sub-folders, and have full permissions on all folders.

C:\bullshitIcantRemove>rmdir /S "Internet Explorer"
Internet Explorer, Are you sure (Y/N)? y
Internet Explorer\backup\en-US\hmmapi.dll.mui - Access is denied.
Internet Explorer\backup\en-US\ieinstal.exe.mui - Access is denied.
Internet Explorer\en-US\hmmapi.dll.mui - Access is denied.
Internet Explorer\en-US\ieinstal.exe.mui - Access is denied.


UPDATE: DISREGARD POST
apparently if you use powershell to take ownership of the folder exactly 3 times, it allows you to delete it.
