If you're uncomfortable about using Unlocker, perhaps try FileAssassin instead:
(Malwarebytes is a reputable company, and you'd be downloading directly from the software manufacturer's site.)

It still didn't work...
Within this commonfiles\apple folder, there is only one folder, labeled "Internet Services." Within this folder, there are 6 folders, labeled:
Within all but CoreDAV and BookmarkDAV_client, there are multiple different folders, all labeled starting with a two letter (acronym I believe, for different languages) then .lproj (for example, a folder is labeled "ar.lproj".
In each of the folders of APLZOD.resources, there is a file labeled "APLZODlocalized.dll."
In all of the folders containing the multiple .lproj folders, there are likewise "name"localized.dll files contained.
In the BookmarkDAV_client and Core DAV folders, they each contain only one file, "Info.plist"
I attempted to delete all of these files, and still, the FileAssassin could not delete them. I unlocked one of them for instance, and I tried to delete the file myself (thru windows explorer and just clicking delete), and I still had the same issue of coming eventually to the window requesting me to "try again" to have permission.
What can I do?? I'd like to avoid Unlocker, but if it really is a reliable and SAFE program, and someone knows a SAFE place to download it from, I'd appreciate it very much so!!

Hmmm. By way of experiment, also try uninstalling your iCloud control panel.
Are you able to delete the folder now?
Currently Being ModeratedDec 3, 2012 9:39 PM (in response to b noir)
nada. I uninstalled it, restarted my computer, and still the files will not delete...
the only program by apple left on my computer is the MobileMe Control Panel....should I uninstall it too? or is there a better alternative still?
Currently Being ModeratedDec 4, 2012 5:04 PM (in response to turima)
Yeah, uninstall that too ... Applesyncnotifier uses AAS files, so the Mobileme control panel might plausibly be the culprit here.

i just tried it out, and still nothing, even after restarting my computer...it still says i need permission to delete the files.

I had the same problem until I downloaded ByeTunes, that's an uninstaller for itunes and it removed the folders you are talking about, after that I installed itunes with no problems as a clean installation.
Hope that helps.

Changing tack, briefly. Sometimes a permissions message might be caused by disk/file damage.
The first thing I'd try with that is running a disk check (chkdsk) over your C drive.
XP instructions in the following document: How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP
Vista instructions in the following document: Check your hard disk for errors
Windows 7 instructions in the following document: How to use CHKDSK (Check Disk)
Select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, or use chkdsk /r (depending on which way you decide to go about doing this). You'll almost certainly have to schedule the chkdsk to run on startup. The scan should take quite a while ... if it quits after a few minutes or seconds, something's interfering with the scan.
Does the chkdsk find/repair any damage? If so, can you get an install to go through properly afterwards?

i had the same problem and i tried this out and it worked, follow these steps go to:
start/control panel/programs/uninstall program
you will see that there is a list of tabs above the list of programs, these tabs are labelled name, publisher, installed on, size, and version, click on the publisher tab, this will re organise the programs so that the publishers are in alphabetical order, make sure that there are no programs with the publisher "apple inc", if there is remove them, for example anything associated with apple like quicktime player, or icloud, or bonjour, just remove them and then try and delete the apple folder from the commons folder.
hope this helped!
