Cannot delete folder - folder in use

7 Home Premium - standard User.
I created a folder on my Desktop for the sole purpose of exporting emails from Thunderbird in eml format, changing them to nws format and dragging them into Windows Live Mail.
The folder is empty and NO program is using it.
On trying to delete it I get the old "Folder is in use" message.
How the *%&£ is an EMPTY folder "in use"?
How do I delete this?

Solved - re-booted.
Shouldn't have been neccessary though - there's obviously some sort of bug...
