When trying to remove profiles off our servers the Mozilla Firefox folder remains. I have tried to take ownership as an admin but no joy I get access is denied when trying to do this.

I have tried removing them via DOS, I am unable to try safe mode since this is a live server so I cant just drop it to give it a try.

I have tried icalcs but the same thing even trying to give ownership to the user who created it and logging on as the user to grant permissions / remove the folder still doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

Moving to MozillaZine Tech as this is a Windows issue, not a Firefox issue.

What server OS are you using and is it possible the server sees the profile is still in use?

It is server 2008 R2 and no the server has been rebooted with patching and not accessed / modified since 2004. We have this with quite a few profiles.
