*leftover user account folders not removable

    Windows XP Sp-3

    I removed a user account, however, Windows is still saving files to a
    "removed" user desktop folder that is left. I cannot remove the Favorites,
    Desktop and several other folder left. Error says it is still being used by
    a program. How do I ditch this?

    Thanks

    Eh? Please explain EXACTLY what you mean by that.
    "Windows" doesn't save files to a folder - YOU as the User do.

    Boot into Safe Mode and try then.
