Unable to delete Thumbs.db

I have frequently encountered the following error message when attempting to delete folders:

Unfortunately, no matter how many times I tried the operation, I was not able to delete the folder.

After doing some searching on the Internet, this seems to be a very common occurrence and issue for numerous people.  However, some individuals suggested removing the Hidden and System attributes from the files and folders in order to be able to successfully delete the content. 

So I ran the following command in the command window: attrib -R -H -S /S /D

After running the following command, I was able to successfully delete the folders!!
