I am logged in as administrator and I am unable to delete a folder while windows is giving me message "You requre permission from Computername\Adminstrator to delete this folder"

What should I do to achieve such rights? :(

Domain? Your computername?

Are you sometimes logged on to a domain instead of a workgroup, like on a computer that is sometimes or always connected to a company network? Then there would be a domain administrator and a local administrator, and you may be the wrong one.

Is the computername actually the name of the computer?

If you just want to delete the offending object this time without investigating the general problem, you can always use the suitable methods of Cannot delete file or folder to force the deletion.
