file or folder still in use, or security privilages. you don't need to use system restore.
in either case, try restarting in safe mode to delete it.

apply these settings and try again to delete this folder.
The last thing to try is to set up a new user as a computer administrator. Log in with that user and type in the run command c:\documents and settings\(old user)\desktop\
be sure to replace (old user) with the appropriate user name.
your problem folder should be listed. simply delete it, log off and log back in as the original user and delete the temporary user you've just created.

There is this program called unlocker http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/. I am assuming you cannot delete the directory because maybe something has it locked? Try unlocker to see what app has got hold of it and you may be able to kill it that way.

After you delete the file, maybe then you can delete the folder.
Also remember, system restore removes all installed programs since the date you revert back to, but it wont delete any personal files (e.g. word documents, MP3's, AVI's etc...)
