    Cannot Delete com1.{d3e34b21-9d75-101a-8c3d-00aa001a1652}

    There is this folder in my pc E:\New folder\com1.{d3e34b21-9d75-101a-8c3d-00aa001a1652}.
    I am unable to delete com1.{d3e34b21-9d75-101a-8c3d-00aa001a1652}
    I don't know how I got it in the first place.
    So far I've tried:
    Taking ownership: Failed
    Tried cmd:takeown /f :Failed
    Tried cmd:icacls :Failed
    I can't even rename the file. Can't send it to recycle bin. I just cannot do anything with the file.
    Has anybody faced such trouble? Can anyone help?

    Have you tried erasers like Wise Force Deleter or Unlocker .

    Windows 8.1 Update 1

    In such cases I always recommend the following: Boot a Linux live system, mount the corresponding hard disk and delete it from there. Has worked in almost 100 % of the cases I've encountered so far.
