    i have a problem.. i can not delete a locked folder( it is in my desctop..)
    i try to unlock it, it shows tha it is unlocked, but i can not delete it... i transfer the folder from pc, and maybe this is the reason why i can not delete it..

    Try putting it in the trash and then restarting before trying to delete it. :)
