If I RIght Click On the same folder and click Propierties ... again is showing me that is write protected . I tried this IN SAFE MODE..WITH THE ADMINISTRATOR and doesn't work . Any suggestions ?

    I think there was a program called file killer or something that supposedly deletes any file regardless if it's write protected. Google it or similar search terms.

    few options here

    1. is this hard drive of yours SATA or PATA? If it is PATA it might have a jumper pin behind it enabling write protection

    2. you can enable or disable write protection for specific hard drives in most BIOS, to enter bios you need to...you probably know how

    3. sometimes hard drive needs a hard boot to work properly. go to your control panel and open "Create and format hard disk partitions" find your drive D: in there and right click it and press "Offline" and then "Online" again this is a hard boot

    check the security, you probably need to take ownership of the files
