I have a runaway process or infestation that is creating files. It has created over 20 M files in one folder. Is there any way to delete this folder regardless of the number of files in it. The creating of files was halted by changing the name of the folder. System will not open folder due to number of files in it.

This seems to have deleted the folder.
Changed folder name which stopped it growing - At some time early on I tried to move the folder to the trash. That did not work. - ran CMD: ATTRIB -s -h -r -a Wait two days. Monday morning the folder was in the trash. Delete trash. Wait two days Wensday morning Trash is empty and I have 3.6 G of free space on my C drive.
That did it. Thank everyone who commented. You helped a lot regardless of your suggestions working for me.
