A folder was being shared over a local area network. After it was no longer needed the share was turned off. Now the folder is locked and I cannot open/delete/move this folder. Or access the information in it. I've tried everything but it doesn't work
Also tried using a program called "unlocker 1.8.5" but that did not work. I am on windows xp and I am admin. Safe mode also doesn't work. This is not spyware related as the problem can be reproduced on different machines.
Hmm that surprises me quite much that Unlocker didn't work. However, you may try deleting the folder by booting on another system (floppy disk or livecd).
