Just because you have admin right doesn't mean that you can delete any object. You may need to take ownership of it first. http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/win...

But you may want to ask yourself why the permissions are what they are and whether you really want to delete the folder.

OK. That's not a directory, it's a drive. The drive Q: is created by Microsoft Office and is required for it's operation. If you have Office then I would leave it alone. If not, or if you have deleted Office, then it shouldn't be there. Google "drive q" for more details.
