Deleting a folder

Simple question I know, I see
PHP Code:
being thrown around with or without the /r flag. I've placed a folder on the desktop and I was able to delete the files just fine. But I can't delete the directory. Also tried moving it with rename and whatnot but it doesn't seem to budge.

I set $INSTDIR as $DESKTOP/[folder name], and i checked to confirm it's the right directory with detailprint. But it won't budge. Need a bit of help with this issue.

Make sure your current $OUTDIR is not the directory you want to delete, or a sub-directory thereof.

Also make sure no other process is currently "locking" the directory...

My Plugins: StdUtils | NSISList | CPUFeatures | ExecTimeout | KillProc

And if all else fails, download Process Monitor from Microsoft and look at what is actually going on...
