Is it really a folder underneath C:\ (root)? Could it be a permission problem? Normal users can't create/delete folders directly under C:\.
Otherwise, give me the exact location and name of the folder and I create a WiseScript (selfexecutable .exe file) for you which you could include in a .msi Custom Action.
Or what about deleting the folder through the RemoveFiles table?

Thanks a lot everyone.... inside the folder there was sub folder which was causing the permssion problem, so delete all the folder using vbscirpt & rename the error ones to something else.. ....
