You could also boot from a LiveCD Linux distro such as Knoppix or even Ubuntu. I've used it a few times to get rid of some pesky folders that Windows would not allow me to delete for the live of me.

The first time I did my vista reinstall I had that folder and it took me several hours to get rid of it. It was a 70 gig folder.
