What to do if you cannot get rid of that Read Only attribute in your folder.

If you get a folder in Windows XP which you either cannot access or rename or delete because of permissions or some other issue and you have tried everything, the solution is a program called Unlocker. It will take some time to delete the file but it does do it. You can also use Unlocker to rename files that cannot be renamed.

I tried all the other solutions recommended by the forums but without success on one particular folder which I wanted to delete. Unlocker was my last resort.
