    CMD prompt as admin:
    Code:
    chkdsk c:\ /f
    Delete it when done.

    Afterwards, it's agood idea to test the drive.

    My guess would be a failed or stale mount from DISM. Those directories are hard to delete by hand.
    You would want to check for and fix stale files and mounts from DISM, just to be sure.

    Code:
    DISM.exe /Cleanup-WIM
