    Quick look on google suggests its a temp program associated with a graphics program. Guess this is all useless info for you. It may be that the folder cant be deleted as its a folder that has to exist to make one of your programs work. Would be interesting to click on properties of the folder and see what its properties actually are, and can you change the properties so that it can be deleted.
    I don't know much, but thats the path I'd explore.

    Go to Start - Find - Files And Folders. Delete everything that appears under:

    *.TMP

    C:\TEMP\*.*

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*
