    Good Evening....haven't been here in awhile....and I've missed y'all. :)

    Here is my problem/question for now:

    I have a folder on my desktop (I made it and put some of my pics into it)...well, now I want to delete this folder, and it will not delete, (it won't let me delete). I am running Windows Vista. on a HP computer (Dell monitor).

    Anyhow, I always get this message:
    Destination Folder Access Denied (across the top in blue)

    The body of this message says "You need to confirm this operation"
    then the name of my folder: JH Wildlife
    date created 9/25/2011 10:05 P.M.

    then below that it has 3 choices
    continue skip cancel

    I click Continue

    Then a new window opens: It says:

    User Account Control (across the top in blue)
    and in the body this time it says
    Windows needs your permission to continue

    If you started this action continue.
    File Operation
    Microsoft Windows

    and my choices are:

    continue or cancel


    I click Continue and the cycle starts all over again with DESTINATION FOLDER ACCESS DENIED
    with 2 choices:

    Continue & Cancel
    and this goes on over and over and over.

    I am the only one that uses this computer here at home...and the only one with access to it anyhow....
    How do I get this folder and any others that I have and no longer want?
    Is there a setting that I can change so I don't have to go thru this every time i want to delete something on my desk top? ( a folder I created)


    Thanks in advance for any help y'all can give me
