This folder is shared with other people... solution
I am using rc1 but this should work for everyone:

I have found that people have been having problems with this since last
year. First I created a new account and within a few days deleted it. Now my
folders were still being shared with a phantom account so whenever I wanted
to delete some folder (empty or not) it would give me the warning "This
folder is shared with other people......" I would click continue and it
would go on and on with no progress until I tired and chose to end the
process. Very annoying. (I have heard that if you wait a few hours not doing
anything it will clear but I did not have that kind of time) Anyway, I tried
everything. First changing the individual sharing. Then the sharing of the
users folder.... Basicly I couldn't stop it from sharing. However when using
the command prompt I could delete it. Great a solution! I didn't feel like
going to cmd all the time so I quickly wrote this (just copy and paste into
notepad and save as a .bat):
@echo off
rmdir %1 /s
pause
Check out my mad coding skilz :P
Anyway just drag and drop to the programs icon as if it were the Recycle
bin. Also If you get tired of the "are you sure y/n" just add a "/q" at the
end of the second line. Also be aware that the files are permanently
deleted, they bypass the recycle bin. Its not like they are shredded but who
needs the hassle of using a third party tool to recover your files.
