    How to remove corrupted or readable file

    Somehow my Visual Studio 2017 community installation has failed. A folder called Roslyn is corrupted or unreadable. I cannot delete it, even running CMD as an Admin.

    Reinstalling VS 2017 doesn't work because it needs that folder.

    SO...what to do?
