I created an alternate folder for some IE favorites back when i was having trouble importing favorites into Outlook 2002. I then marked it "dump this" so i'd know to dump it when I got straightened out. Well, now I'm straigtened out, but windows xp won't allow me to dump the folder, saying it's a "windows system folder and is needed by windows to run properly. It cannot be deleted." I've tried renaming it, etc, but it didn't work.

I want to chuck this darn thing- It's really not that big a deal, frankly, :eek: just a matter of XP telling me I can't do something and it's annoying and I don't want XP to think it can get away with bossing me around...I thought I was done with annoyances like this when I jettisoned Win98...

Can someone tell me how to get rid of this folder?
